  • unflavored gelatin softened in 1/4 cup of water to mixture and cool.
  • Beat 6 egg whites till stiff and add 1/2 cup sugar.
  • Fold whites into egg yolk mixture.

  • Pour 1/3 of lemon custard mixture over cake.
  • Continue until there are 3 layers ending with the custard mixture.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
