Apply the softened almond paste in a thin layer (approx. 3.5 mm) and spread evenly over the bottom layer. Roll out the top layer to approx. 3.5 mm, place it on the layer of almond paste and bake.
Lightly colour the fondant as desired with Arlico red carmine and apply in a thin layer to the cooled cake. Cut the cake into pieces of approx. 7 x 7 cm and finish with whipped cream and fresh fruit.
