Almond Cake Recipe! (requested)

Ingredients:
1 1/3 cups (265g) sugar
8 oz. almond paste (225g)
¾ + ¼ cup (140g total) flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder (1 tsp @8500 ft.)
¾ tsp salt
1 cup (225g) unsalted butter, cubed and room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
6 eggs, room temperature

Instructions
Oven 325°F.
Grind the sugar, almond paste, and ¼ cup of flour in a food processor until it resembles sand.
Whisk the remaining ¾ cup of flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Set aside.
Put the butter, vanilla extract, and almond extract in the bowl of a stand mixer, add the almond paste mixture and cream until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs to the batter, one at a time.
Scrape the sides of the bowl frequently (THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT)
Dump all of the flour mixture and fold until combined.
*IMPORTANT*
If the batter looks separated (oilyish) add an additional 1/3 cup of flour. This happens if you make your own almond paste!!
Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake until the top is deep brown and the center is set. Let the cake cool completely before removing it from the pan. If it sticks to the bottom, hold the pan over a burner for a few seconds and the cake should release when inverted!!!!!!

I used this to make two 6" round cakes.

omgraesremmurdian asked:

can you make any themed cakes or cupcakes,, like maybe ones that are shaped like the Arr de Triomphe in Paris??.. its just that i've seen so many Eiffel Tower ones and I wanna see if you guys can make something different..

I do themed desserts frequently, as for the Arc, probably not just because realistically the amount of time I would have to put into the pieces and the amount of detail would be so extensive that I would have to charge WAY more than id be comfortable with (I also don’t know how good it would look if I didn’t have a mold) but if you have any other themes in mind I’m sure we can brainstorm and figure it out!!! Shoot me an email contact.flourpower@gmail.com if you want to talk about an order or anything 💕

Unfortunately :(

I can’t take any more orders for the next two weeks! If you do want to place an order for a later date feel free to shoot me your order or any questions at contact.flourpower@gmail.com!
