|Ground almonds||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Egg white||3 Tablespoon|
|Confectioners sugar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Orange juice||4 Tablespoon|

For the filling mix the sugar and almonds with egg white to form a soft paste, then spread over the dough.
For the finish sift the confectioners' sugar and mix with enough orange juice to give a soft consistency.

Halve the candied cherries and cut the angelica into 16 small diamonds.
Decorate the cake with cherries and angelica before the frosting sets.
