baklava cake

I made a sort of baklava cake - it has almond paste, eggs, butter, sugar, baking soda,vanilla, and 8 ounces of cooked phyllo dough, all blended together in a food processor until it forms a paste. I cooked it and then topped it with a syrup of sugar, honey, lemon juice, and orange blossom water and let it soak in for a few hours.

The first of many cousins have already landed in LA! I have been busy planning itineraries for my dear family visiting me and celebrating Christmas here. Anyone wants to recommend anywhere I could bring them to other than my favourite haunts? I will pay you in baklavas and lava cakes!
