– Pound cake – Vanilla ice cream – Egg whites – Sugar


Place the cake rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


Top each cake round with a large scoop of ice cream. Place these in the freezer while you prepare the meringue.


Beat the room temperature egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed until they form a stiff, but not dry, meringue.


Remove the prepared cake and ice cream layers from the freezer and cover each with meringue, making sure to seal the meringue all the way down to the parchment.
