Grand Marnier Meringue Torte
This grown-up birthday cake blends delicately crisp meringues, orange-scented cream, a hint of chocolate, and fresh fruit. If you can find a clear vanilla extract, you can use that in this recipe to make the meringues whiter and brighter. Prepare the meringues up to three days ahead, and store at room temperature in an airtight container. Top with filling and fruit shortly before serving.
