This was, surprisingly, a little bland. However, after it soaked into the cake a little longer (2nd day)it tasted delicious. I made a three layer cake and put this between one layer and an apricot filling between the other layer. They complimented each other well. I topped it off with Special Buttercream Frosting also found on this site.

This filling is a basic custard, very nice texture. I did need to add more amaretto.

I just made this and loved it, I am a chef and making a cake for a friend that loves almonds. I didn't have the liquor so I used almond extract, I just used a little bit more almond extract, about 1 or 2 teaspoons, and I put in one tbsp of vanilla extract. I would recomment this to anyone, it's super easy and good. :)
