“This is a recipe from 'Company's Coming Decadent Desserts By Jean Paré' This is a book I received as a gift and have decided to work my way through it. I made this cake for my grandfather's 91st birthday and it's pretty tasty! There are a number of steps involved, but each step is easy. Preparation time is only a guess and does not include freezing time. The book says to put the meringue into a rectangular shape, but I'm sure any shape would work.”
