Lemon Almond Cake

Lemon Almond Cake

Author Notes: I was tasked with making a birthday cake for a sugar/starch-free 3-year-old. I kindof combined a bunch of different recipes to make one that I thought would taste good and also didn't have any artificial sweeteners. It turns out a little flat, but I just turned it into a 4-layer cake with lemon cream cheese frosting.Phoebe120
