  1. Hi! What equivalent to cake jars and almond powder would we have here in England?? Thank you

    1. Hi Theresa, sometimes I also make it with walnuts or hazelnuts or I even add some cocos rasp for a different flavour. I am not quite sure what you mean with the cake jars. Do you mean the forms in which they are made? warm regards, Toon
