Boccone Dolce (Sweet Mouthful)

img_0941

Calling this a cake is a somewhat generous term. It’s really just an excuse to eat an obscene amount of whipped cream with strawberries and chocolate, held together by three layers of merengue. It is delicious though. Nothing strange or exotic about these flavour pairings, just a classic winner. Would I do it again? Why not. The only hiccup I had was that my merengue took longer to set than the recipe allotted for. Strange, because normally my oven runs hotter than the Prices. The result was that the merengue didn’t come cleanly off the wax paper and I ended up with three mangled layers for the cake.
