    7. Cool the cakes slightly in the pans.

    8. Carefully remove the cakes from the pans and transfer them to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    9. To make the filling, melt the chocolate, remove from the heat, and Stir in the butter.

    10. Let cool slightly.

    12. Place the cake without the extra almonds on a serving plate and spread the filling over it.
