A Sara Lee All But­ter All Pur­pose Pound Cake, $6, from ma­jor su­per­mar­kets

DI­REC­TIONS Make the meringue: In an elec­tric mixer, whisk 180g sugar with 3 egg whites un­til stiff peaks form. Pipe the mix­ture into long, thick lines on a bak­ing pa­per-lined tray and bake in a pre­heated 90 deg C oven for 30-40min un­til crisp. Set aside to cool.

With the cake ly­ing on its side, slice off the top, then cut the cake into two halves.

Spread 50g Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy Vanilla Frost­ing on the bot­tom half.

Top with the up­per half and spread 20g vanilla frost­ing around the sides.

With 80g vanilla frost­ing in a pip­ing bag, pipe thick lines across the top of the cake.

Sprin­kle coloured sugar* over the meringue. Break the meringue into ir­reg­u­lar chunks and stick them around the sides of the cake.

Gar­nish with halved straw­ber­ries. Op­tional: You can blend 2 pis­ta­chios into a fine crum­ble or coarsely crum­ble a di­ges­tive bis­cuit and sprin­kle over the cake.
