   the almonds with the sugar.
   Beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks.  Fold into the almond mixture.
   Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin. Bake for 18-20 mins in the
   bottom of the oven.
   Mix all the ingredients for the icing in a saucepan. Simmer slowly over low
   heat until the cream has thickened. Add a little boiling water if the cream
   starts to separate or curdle.

   the cake cool before serving, preferably overnight.
