Slice cake horizontally into 3 layers. Place the bottom layer on round bottom of the springform pan. Drizzle with a little orange juice and spread with pear jam. Place middle layer onto cake, drizzle with orange juice and cover with the pear slices. Spread the lemon jelly on top of pears and place final cake layer on top. Spread whipped cream over the cake's top and sides and decorate the top with almonds flakes. If desired, decorate the cake with whipped cream using a star tip. Garnish as desired with finely chopped mint.
