Introduction: Meringue Cake With Walnuts

This meringue cake with walnuts made is perfectly suited for special occasions as it looks quite festive. The cake is easy to prepare and very tasty so you'll offer a nice surprise to your family and guests. It's a pretty light cake and the walnuts add a special taste so it feels like a scrumptious cake inspite of it's simpleness.

I also like that the cake can be decorated various ways, depending on your preferences. You could use white, chocolate or a colorful frosting, you could swap the walnuts with peanut or almonds, you could add whip cream if you like. This meringue cake can also be decorated with fruits or even make the fruits the main character of this cake.

For this time I opted for walnuts only and white frosting, with no other add ons as I wanted to make the walnuts the main focus of this recipe.
