I love cakes with almond paste! It makes them so, so moist and almondy. This one looks especially delicious! You can definitely add frosting. I would do a thin layer of vanilla. The cake is pretty sweet with tons of almond flavor. So you don’t need a lot, but adding it will not ruin it either. Enjoy
