DIRECTIONS

  • Coat two 8-inch round cake pans with nonstick cooking spray, and lightly flour.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1/2 cup butter, the water, eggs, and almond extract; mix well.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans, dividing evenly.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool, then remove from the pans to cool completely.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, make frosting by combining the remaining 1/2 cup butter, the confectioners' sugar, milk, and rum extract; mix until smooth.
  • Stir in the crushed cashews until mixed through.
  • Place 1 cake layer upside down on a serving plate and frost the top.
  • Place the second layer over the first and frost the top and sides of the cake completely.
  • Garnish with the whole cashews then cover loosely and chill until ready to serve.
