  into the butter mixture.  Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.
  Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.  Pour into a well-greased
  10-inch tube pan.  Bake in a preheated 325 degree F. oven for about
  60 minutes or until the cake tests done.  Cool cake in pan for 10

        2 T  of rum over each layer.

  10 minutes. While still beating the egg yolks, add the sugar syrup in
  a thin stream. Beat 5 minutes more, until very thick and doupled in
  bulk.  Slowly beat in the rum.  Beat the butter in a small bowl until
  soft and light.  Beat butter into the egg mixture a little at a time.
  Continue beating until thick. Chill until mixture can be spread.  If
  mixture is too soft, beat in additional butter.
  While butter-cream is cooking, spread 2 T butter thickly in a 9 X
  13-inch baking pan for praline topping.  Then in a 1-quart saucepan,
  boil sugar an water to 238 degrees F. (soft ball stage).  Stir in
  almonds; cook until mixture reaches 310 degrees F. or until syrup
  carmelizes.  Pour syrup into prepared baking pan.  When cool, break
  up praline and grind it in a blender for a few seconds.
  Finally heat jam and press through a strainer or sieve to make apricot
  To assemble cake, place bottom layer of cake on cake plate and spread
  with half of the butter cream.  Repeat with second layer.  Place
  third layer on top.  Spread top and sides of cake with apricot glaze.
  Press praline powder onto glaze.  Any remianing butter cream can be
  used to decorate the top of the cake.
