This cake is AMAZING. I was searching for a recipe for Baumkuchen after watching a contestant make this on Top Chef. This recipe works perfectly. My only advice: the almond paste is difficult to mix with the butter/cornstarch/powdered sugar mixture, so I grated the almond paste first and then mixed it with a pastry blender. Not hard to make at all, once you get a sense of how hot your broiler is, and how thin to make the layers (and it's fine if the first few are a little too brown because it's all covered up anyway). It's a total wow dessert and absolutely delicious!
