  • Mix the cake mix, 4 egg yolks, oil and water in bowl, blend for 2 minutes.
  • Pour into pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and cool completely before turning it out of the pan.
  • Invert into a flat, clean working surface, carefully peel off the parchment paper
  • With a 2 1/2-3 inch cookie cutter, cut out cake into rounds.
  • Dust off crumbs and place on a clean baking sheet lined with more parchment paper.
  • Top each cake with a scoop of ice cream and put the pan in the freezer until ice cream is firm.
  • Leave in the freezer until just before you wish to serve.
  • Beat 4 egg whites until soft peaks form, slowly add the sugar and vanilla extract and continue to beat until firm peaks hold.
  • Turn on broiler (high heat).
  • Remove ice cream cakes from the freezer and quickly frost with the egg white meringue.
