Butter and flour one 8 inch and one 9 inch cake pan. Finely grind almonds in processor. Sift flour, baking powder. Set aside. Cream butter with sugar until blended. Beat in almond paste a few pieces at a time. Beat until mixture resembles a smooth paste. Add eggs, one at a time - add vanilla and beat until batter increased slightly in volume (about 5 minutes). Mix in almonds, then dry ingredients. Bake about 55 minutes - for 8 inch and 65 minutes for 12 inch. Turn cake onto racks and cool completely. (It also can be made in large rectangular pan.) BERRY FILLING: 2 c. frozen blueberries, thawed 2 c. unsweetened blackberries 2 c. raspberries 2/3 c. sugar Combine berries in heavy saucepan, sprinkle with sugar. Bring to boil and reduce heat and simmer until reduced to 2 cups (about 20 minutes). Refrigerate until chilled. FROSTING: 15 oz. imported white chocolate, chopped 4 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature 2 1/2 lbs. cream cheese, room temperature 3 tbsp. vanilla 6 1/2 c. powdered sugar 1 1/4 tsp. almond extract 1 c. sour cream Melt chocolate in top of double boiler.

Add melted chocolate and mix until just combined; stir in sour cream. Chill if needed to spread. ASSEMBLY: Using serrated knife - cut each cake horizontally into 3 layers. Spread bottom layer with 2/3 cup berry filling, leaving 1/2 inch border uncovered. Carefully spread 2 cups frosting over entire layer. Top with middle layer and repeat steps above. Top with top layer and spread frosting all over. NOTE: If doing layer cake, place smaller 8 inch cake on a piece of cardboard. Cut four dowels - so they are 1/8 inch above top of cake when pressed in bottom layer.
