It depends on how your baker makes it; some do it with marzipan (an almond and sugar paste) and others do it with real almonds which I’ve never tried.  Personally I think cakes made with marzipan as a base are fantastic (and was my favorite at our tasting) as long as you have a simple frosting going with it as it’s a pretty rich flavor.  Hope that helps!

Almond is a classic flavor and the almond itself is very symbolic. But a word to the wise, you should have some allergy friendly cake for anyone who needs it. It could  just be pretty cup cakes, or if you talk to your baker they may toss something in for free if you hint at the whole “death by almond cake” thing.

It’s a wonderful flavor. If you want to try it, seriously, go to ANY bridal show! They always have it. It’s a warm, sweet, sort of nutty flavor that is just delicious!

I was considering doing the almond cake for the groom’s cake, but the allergy comment above makes a good point.  I know that one of my BMs gets a major allergic reaction to anything with nuts.
