- STEP 1
Preheat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/ gas mark 3.
- STEP 2
For the meringue, make a basic meringue mix and on a sheet of parchment paper/greaseproof paper spread a layer of meringue about as thick as a ÃÂ£1 coin and as wide as the cake tin. Bake it until it is golden-y on the top. Do quite a few of these as these will fit between the layers.
- STEP 3
Bake two half-pound cakes and trim the first one so it fits nicely on the bigger one. Separate them both into half or in 3 parts and when the meringues are done, slot them into the layers.
- STEP 4
For the icing, put the mascarpone in a mixer and beat until smooth. Slowly add the confectioner's sugar until the frosting is the thickness you like. Add the lemon extract and mix until even.
- STEP 5
Cover the cake with the frosting and decorate it like the cake in the My Little Pony episode.
