This classic dessert goes together easily, but looks impressive. Sponge cake is topped with Grand Marnier, ice cream, and meringue, then served with fresh berries.


  • 6 slices loaf sponge cake or pound cake cut 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick
  • 3 -5 teaspoons Grand Marnier, other orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
  • 6 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup meringue powder
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
  • Fresh red raspberries (optional)


  1. On a baking sheet, arrange cake slices. Sprinkle with liqueur. Place a scoop of ice cream on each. Cover and freeze for at least 2 hours.
  2. In a large bowl, stir the water into 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar and the meringue powder. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed for 5 minutes. Gradually beat in remaining powdered sugar. Spread meringue over each cake and ice cream serving. Bake in a 500 degree F oven for 3 minutes or until meringue is golden. Serve immediately. If you like, garnish with raspberries.
