To make the crumble topping:



Melt your butter and add the sugar, flour and flaked almonds to the pan. Mix with a spoon until the mixture becomes a crumble and is quite firm.

Leave to cool in the tin for ten minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

In a bowl, mix the icing sugar and boiling water with a spoon until you have a smooth thick icing.



Drizzle the icing over the cake and finish with some fresh cherries on top.
