    P4's Note:

    This recipe is from one of my hero's, Alice Medrich. It is a simple nut-meringue based cake layer, that can be filled and coated with anything. It needs to sit for several hours after filling or coating with your favorite mousse or buttercream, so that the filling/coating can soften the texture. It will be like cardboard if you omit this step. This is not a dessert in itself - it is the basis for many different desserts.
