For the Marzipan Mascarpone Meringue Madness

  • You will need
  • Pink half-pound cake (use half a pound instead of a pound of ingredients)
  • Meringue mix

For the icing

  • 16 oz mascarpone cheese
  • Approx. 6 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon extract or lemon juice

For decorating

  • Whipped cream
  • Marzipan fruits and flowers


  • 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 ã1 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.
