To make frosting, warm marmalade and press through a strainer to obtain jelly.
Brush warm jelly over top and sides of cake.
On a surface sprinkled with powdered sugar, roll out almond paste to a round large enough to cover top of cake.

Blend powdered sugar and hot water in a small bowl to give a smooth frosting.
