   *Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.
   Spread the almonds in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 8 to
   12 minutes, stirring two or three times, until the color of the nuts turns
   from white to tan. Transfer the almonds to another baking sheet to stop the
   cooking process.
   Make the sponge cake: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat
   to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter the bottom and side of a 10-inch
   springform cake pan. Line the bottom of the pan with a circle of baking
   parchment or waxed paper. Dust the side of the pan with flour and tap out
   the excess. In a small bowl, using a wire whisk, stir together the flour,
   baking powder and salt, until thoroughly blended. Sift the flour mixture
   onto a piece of waxed paper. In a large bowl, using a hand-held electric
   mixer set at high speed, beat the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons of the
   granulated sugar for 4 to 6 minutes, until the batter is pale yellow and
   forms a thick ribbon. Beat in the vanilla. In a grease-free large bowl,
   using a handheld electric mixer and clean beaters, beat the egg whites at
   low speed until frothy. Gradually increase the speed to high and continue
   beating the whites until they start to form soft peaks. One teaspoon at a
   time, gradually add the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue
   beating the whites until they form stiff, shiny peaks.  Scrape one-third of
   the whites on top of the beaten egg yolks. Resift one-third of the flour
   mixture over the whites and using a balloon whisk or a large rubber
   spatula, fold the flour mixture and eg
   Make the mango mousse: Put the water in a small heatproof cup. Sprinkle the
   gelatin over the water and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes to soften.
   Place the cup with the softened gelatin in a saucepan with enough water to
   come halfway up the side of the cup. Heat the gelatin mixture in hot, not
   simmering water. Stir the gelatin mixture frequently for 2 to 3 minutes,
   until the gelatin granules dissolve completely and the mixture is clear.
   Remove the pan from the heat. Leave the cup containing the gelatin mixture
   in the hot water to keep the gelatin warm until ready to use. Peel the
   mangos and cut the fruit away from the pit. Cut the fruit into large
   chunks. Combine half of the mango chunks with 1/2 cup of the sugar in the
   bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade. Process the
   mangos for 40 to 60 seconds, until pureed. Transfer the pureed mangos to a
   large saucepan. Repeat with the remaining mangos and 1/2 cup of sugar. Cook
   the mango mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until warm.
   Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the gelatin mixture and vanilla and
   whisk until blended. Transfer the mango mixture to a large bowl and cool to
   room temperature. In a chilled large bowl, using a handheld electric mix
