I love this cake but I made mine a little different. I made regular cake mix and made the filling from scratch. But all in all this is one of my family's favorite. P.S. I hope you don't mind me adding a picture of my cake.
This is so delicious! Didn't change a thing perfect as is. Separate your eggs when they are cold and let the egg whites sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. They will have more fluff to them when you whip them. Add sugar only at the end in small amounts at a time.
I made this for my best friends birthday. She is a lemon freak. It turned out amazing. Im not good at making meringue so that took me two times to get it right to spread on cake. This cake is so good and you will be the hit of any party.
I am surprised that nobody has mentioned any problems with layering the cake yet. I followed the instructions exactly and my pie filling kept coming out of the sides. Additionally the layers were sliding around. So what I did was stake the layers with some chop sticks and stuck it in the fridge for a while so the pie filling could harden up. After a while the pie filling stopped being pushed out and that is when I put the meringue on. Took the chop sticks out and stuck it in the oven immediately. I was hoping the meringue would seal the pie filling but it didn't. As soon as it got heated up it was leaking to the bottom of the cake making the cake look like a mess. Will never make this recipe again. The only change I made to the recipe was the meringue. I used a recipe that I use for my pie recipe that uses cornstarch egg whites sugar salt and vanilla extract.
