Chocolate Meringue Cake

Start with making two chocolate cakes, one big and one smaller.

Whip up some egg whites into meringue.

Once cake cools, pile on the meringue. I decided to use meringue to cover the cake because it's healthier than butter cream! Plus, I don't own any butter.

Make it look fierce with some spikes!!!

Use meringue to pipe on the birthday boy's name! Happy Birthday, David! I originally wanted the cake to be in the middle of the pan, but the cake fell to one side of the pan when I lifted it up...soooo it gave me the idea to write "David" on the side and add more meringue art!!

I wish I had a kitchen blow torch to do this next step so I get a prettier meringue cake. But it still worked out fine with a hot oven. I had to physically hold the cake up close to the top of the oven to brown the meringue!!! Rotating the cake a few times, holding it side all works!!

This is the first cake that I've made. Plus, it's the first baked good that I made using my birthday present! My KitchenAid stand mixer!!! woohooo!!!! Totally love it!
