I made chocolate mousse (doubled the recipe) and I had 10 egg whites left over so this recipe was a perfect way to use them. The cake tasted super. I didn't have almond extract on hand, so I used only vanilla. I didn't make the frosting. I'm thinking about using whipped cream and fresh strawberries to finish off the cake. I doubled the cake recipe. Thanks for the recipe!
