  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place egg whites, remaining 1 cup sugar, and salt in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Set a saucepan filled with water over medium heat; bring water to a boil. Hold bowl over simmering water, and whisk mixture until sugar has dissolved and eggs are warm to the touch. Return bowl to mixer; beat mixture on medium-high speed until stiff and glossy, about 6 minutes. Spoon meringue over reserved cake and strawberries, forming a peak. Transfer to oven; bake until top is lightly browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Serve immediately.

I made this with whipping cream as one of the layers and omitted the meringue. I also had very sweet berries and left out the sugar and the orange juice. My family loved it and there wasn't a bite left.
