First off, this was delicious. However, I tried to do it all in one day (make the meringue in the AM, leave it in the oven for a few hours), and the meringue really suffered. By the time I served it, it was crumbling apart and the filling was running off the edges. I was pretty disappointed, but that's my own fault for not following the recipe, I suppose. It still tasted great. Also, remember to be very gentle with the orange slices while they poach, because they fall apart really easily.
