Preheat oven to 325'F. (165'C.). Generously grease a 5-cup fluted or plain
tube pan and dust lightly with flour. Sift flour, baking powder and Mixed
Spice into a bowl. Add margarine, superfine sugar and eggs. Blend cocoa
powder with hot water and add to flour mixture. Beat well with a wooden
spoon 2 minutes or 1 minute if using an electric mixer. Turn mixture into
prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven 1-1/4 hours or until well risen and
cake begins to shrink from edges of pan. Carefully turn out cake onto a
wire rack and cool.

Combine granulated sugar and 2/3 cup water in a saucepan. Add cinnamon and
heat gently, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil 5 minutes. Remove from heat,
add rum and discard cinnamon. Place cake on a plate. Spoon syrup over cake
and let stand 2 hours. Stud top of cake with almonds. Melt chocolate;
carefully spooon over cake, spreading to give a smooth even coating. Let
stand several hours. Pipe (with a pastry bag) whipped cream around bottom
of cake.
