Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes before turning onto a wire rack to finish cooling.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy

Sieve the icing sugar into a bowl and gradually beat in the lemon juice or water until the mixture is thick. It needs to be firm, but still soft enough to drizzle down the sides of the cake.
When they are cool, put one cake on a plate and spread with the jam. Put the second on top and spread with the glacÚ icing before scattering the ground almonds over the top of the finished cake.
