  1. This looks fantastic, especially if it can be made with cottage cheese! I love finding low fat alternatives in baking. Looking forward to reading more of your recipes, they look beautiful!

  2. What a lovely cake this is Mila. I love those fresh, crisp colors, the red does pop out! I love the idea of the sliced almonds on the top, it really shows it off nicely. I’m repeating the recipe for our Thanksgiving here next week, but this time I’ll be adding the almonds on the top. 🙂 Thanks for the tip!
