Ombre Meringue Cake

This Ombre Meringue Cake in my opinion is food art. I love everything about it. First, it’s crunchy, melts in your mouth meringue layers, the super soft Dulce de Leche whipped cream and all the delicious berries that add a pop of tartness. In addition, layers and layers of textures and flavors! This cake is also gluten free, but equally loved by everyone!

This Ombre Meringue Cake was a family affair, my mom helped a lot. Especially during the decorating process. She is the perfectionist of the family, so she hand selected every single berry and placed it in the perfect spot. A tedious job that she finished with success and was rewarded with extra cake. I have always loved meringue and any meringue inspired desserts, with my love for pastel colors an Ombre Meringue Cake was just so appropriate to make for our wedding anniversary. 

Why you will love this Ombre Meringue Cake

  • First, the meringue layers are perfectly baked, crunchy on the outside, with the perfect middle.
  • Also, the cake is covered in super soft and fluffy Dulce de Leche whipped cream, which it creates an irresistible flavor combo.
  • The whipped cream by itself is addicting, and adds a lot of texture to the cake.
  • In addition, the cake has lots of berries, which just give a pop of color to this beautiful cake.
  • Lastly, the cake is absolutely gorgeous, and a show stopper dessert.

How to cut the Ombre Meringue Cake

You will need a very sharp knife to cut it and you will have to be gentle. The cutting process is a bit messy. However, don’t worry about it, that’s the beauty of it. The meringue has a deeper color, and on the plate everything gets together, the berries, the pieces of meringue and the heavenly delicious whipped cream.
