Custard Meringue Gateau by cakecrumbs Custard Meringue Gateau by cakecrumbs
This is the cake I made for my boyfriend's 29th birthday last Friday. The cake is 4 layers of sponge cake, filled with custard and raspberries, coated with meringue and then decorated with glazed meringue quenelles, raspberries and almonds.

I know, I'll say what we're all thinking: I'm terrible at quenelles.

Despite the weight of the cake, how much liquid and sweetness is in it, the final product is light on the palate and not the sweetness overload I was wary of. The thick layers of custard were soaked up by the sponge overnight and the airy meringue covering it made for a refreshing change from icing. The almonds and berries offset the sweetness, as did the light, plain sponge.

See more photos of this cake and get the recipe here at my blog: [link]
