    I made this on the weekend and it was great - very rich! After the cake has been taken out of the oven, increase the temp to 200 degrees to cook the meringue.

    Step 8 cont.. Spoon on top of the cake. Repeat with the remaining melted chocolate and meringue. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the meringue is firm.

    There is nothing about cooking the meringue that I can see in the recipe? Do you do layers or on top of the cake?
