I would suggest maybe less, if not none of the almond extract. Also, add 2 tablespoons of water to mix the extract(s).

Nice job - looks good!  I get terribly impatient when separating and whipping egg whites, so am doubly impressed.

One thing that would make this Instructable better is a picture of your own finished cake as the main image!  Or did you eat it too quickly? ;)
