Expert Tips

You will need a springform pan to make this impressive cake. A regular 9-inch round pan is too small. Also, the delicate meringue top would crumble if the cake was removed from the pan by turning upside down onto a cooling rack.

Serve with fresh raspberries and a raspberry or chocolate sauce, if desired.
