Moving right along
The last of the 7.5 dozen eggs I purchased on Monday.
The eggs went into
- matza brei
- cheese latkes
- the failed meringue
- the failed custards ( orange and chocolate)
- the successful meringue shell
- the successful chocolate custard
- matza balls
and this cake. My nephew is nut allergic and is coming to the first Seder. I have been faking (improvising) a sponge cake out of the left over egg yolks from making meringues. I had lots of yolks so faked a lemony sponge cake.
I thought it would look cute topped with a lemon custard and teeny meringue stars. I piped the meringue into the bottom of the same spring form pan I had used to bake the cake on a lining of parchment paper.
I topped the cake with the custard and then added the meringue border.
I had even created a center medallion.
Tomorrow night I will add blackberries to the top of the cake.
