    Can I make this the night before and if I do should I keep it in the fridge. Will the meringue be okay?

    I was just wondering if I could substitute the kitchen torch for anything else. Any ideas?

    mimi, it sounds like your merengue wasn't whisked long enough. Also, did you use an electric mixer?

    i did this cake but unfortunately the cake was dense and compact , the meringue started to ooze clear fluid and butter cream became hard. i want to know my mistakes, thanks.

    I'm so excited I found this recipe! The amaretto flavor and the meringue will be perfect for my mother's birthday celebration. I'm sure she'll be dazzled. I like the previous member's comment about preparing this for the Christmas holiday, too. The lighter flavors will be excellent contrasted with some of the richer flavors in traditional holiday dessert fare. Thanks again!

    This looks like a cake that my husband would simply enjoy. I know that I will make this recipe up once and then find myself making it quite frequently for our guests. I think I might even try this as a Christmas cake and add some food coloring to the meringue to make it look festive. Thanks so much for this recipe.
