Place egg white, egg yolk, sugar, flour, spice, and almond flour into Vita-mix and blend on variable speed for 4 minutes. Place blended cake batter into an iSi whipper and charge with 3 to 4 chargers. Fill a plastic cup with 1 cup of charged cake batter an cook in a microwave for 1 minute. Let cool 1 minute, then break into desired shapes and reserve.
