For making Cake with Kataifi:
1. Divide the Kataifi into 3 parts. Softly loosen the Kataifi threads apart with your hands until they become fluffy.
2. On baking paper, draw 3 x 25 cm diameter circles and fill them with Kataifi. Pour the melted butter over the 3 disks. Bake Kataifi in a preheated oven at 180°C for 20 minutes, until it becomes golden brown. Remove the Kataifi disks from the oven and alloe them to cool.
3. Place one Kataifi disk on a platter, pour a little of the sour cherry syrup and spread with 1/3 of the filling. Place the other Kataifi disk on top of the filling and sprinkle with a little syrup. Spread another 1/3 of the filling and cover with the last Kataifi disk. Sprinkle with the syrup, spread the remaining filling, and garnish with sour cherries and sliced almonds.
