      My daughter picked this cake for her birthday, and it turned out great. It was pretty easy to make, and tasted fabulous! I found the recipe in the best of Cooking Light everyday favorites cook book.

      I have made this cake loads of times and it is always a big hit. I use egg white meringue with peppermint flavoring for the topping and brown it in the oven for an even more spectacular presentation. The only problem is that peppermint ice cream is usually just available during the holidays.
