Almond Cake with whipped cream frosting

Almond cake is a very healthy variety to cakes.My friend ,Sho used to do it often.Inspired at her preparations, cooked this cake.Whenever, I start preparing cakes,Rohith will be very excited to mix it with the hand mixer.We can prepare it by using store bought almond paste,but I prefer to use it home made.Almonds are very good for health,both for kids and adults.Bcause ,it has good cholestrol.
