Toasted almond chips finish that irresistible tasty slice of cake, which goes wonderfully with a cup of tea or coffee.

First thing first, toast sliced almonds (or any chopped nuts) in the oven for 8 - 10 minutes at 350 F (180 C). Set aside to cool completely before topping the cake.
Next, measure out all dry ingredients, mix them all together with a wire whisk. Set aside until ready for use.

Finally, slice each sponge cake in half. Add about 2 cups of cream in between each sponge layer. Push some of that cream off the edges of the sponge, for easier icing of the sides of the cake.
To get beautiful and clean slices of cake, warm the knife in hot water and wipe between each slice. It takes a little more time but is worth preventing a sticky mess. I hope you find this tip helpful with slicing all of your cakes.
