    Tried this cake at a coffee shop in Newtown and then found this recipe in thermomix language. Love it, Thankyou.
    Have made it about 5 times now and think I have perfected it.
    It’s quite easy - really! Just follow the instructions.
    i have been known to grate a bit of chocolate over it but it really didn’t need it.
    its a great summer dessert and I think people only invite me to their get together because I bring this contribution.
    Thank you

    Had a watermelon cake at a wedding. Loved it so thought I make one myself. Turn to the trusted community site and found this recipe  which was lovely. I reduced sugar in the meringue and omitted it in the cream. Nice and refreshing. Everyone loved it
