Lemon-Filled Meringue Cake

Recipe by Alia55

A lovely lemon dessert.

Top Review by Shappy

It tasted really great. The only thing I would suggest is that you leave the cake and the filling to cool until you assemble it. I assembled it almost right away and everything started to slip off and it was just a giant mess. Very yummy however!! Remember LET IT COOL!
