Whilst looking for inspiration on Pinterest for an interesting cake to make for a friends birthday, I came across this recipe…. Toasted Meringue Frosting.. and it is just fab! I love how not only the frosting looks impressive having been blow torched, but it has such a light taste – much lighter than butter cream. The best bit is it’s soo much fun to make!!

For the sponge I used another of Zoe’s recipes – Lower in calorie Red Velvet Cake the sponge was very light but moist in texture with out compromising on flavour -definitely recommended.
