NOTE: If you make this cake, you can divide the work into 2 days of filling to continue tomorrow. When roasting hazelnuts, be sure to stir them constantly over a moderate heat, taking care not to burn them. Peel them best by rubbing. And then grind them into small pieces. You can add as many almonds as you need for decoration, put them in warm water and then peel them and divide the leaves, and dry them! You can also make this cake in a rectangular shape, measuring 35×20 cm.
