Almond Cake in Pastry & Baking Posted March 29, 2006 I like David Lebovitz's...his is the Chez Painisse or like the Chez Painisse one...←Here's the recipe. And now, if you'll pardon me, I have to go buy almond paste. ←On the topic of almond paste, whenever I buy it, I always think about making my own. Does anyone bother making your own paste, or is the commercially-available product better, finer textured, etc.?
