Easy Meringue Cake "Earl Ruins!" {Графские Pазвалины}

A simple recipe, you can make in 20 min! With little effort and without spending a lot of time - make "Earl ruins!" cake. It looks impressive, it's very tasty and easy to make. You can add all kinds of nuts, fruits, toppings, chocolate...  
 Ingredients for cream:
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 can sweet condensed milk 
2 sticks (220 grams) unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
Optional 2-3 tsp baking cocoa

You will need:
1 box of vanilla meringue cookies from Trader Joe's
Sliced toasted almonds

If you decide to make meringues from scratch, here is the original  recipe for this cake:
5 egg whites, 3/4 cup sugar, 1/6 tsp salt  

To prepare the meringues: Separate the egg whites from the yolks and whites are well chilled add a small pinch of salt. Beat whites 2 minutes, then gradually, 1 tablespoon, still whisking, add the sugar. Beat up a strong foam and sugar is dissolved. To quickly get a strong meringue  foam you can add powdered sugar. Oil the parchment paper. You can use a spoon to add meringues  on the sheet.
Bake meringues at 200° F in the oven, about 2 hours.

Whip butter until it becomes fluffy. At this point you can add cocoa powder.
Add sweet condensed milk gradually while mixing. Set it aside.
Whisk egg yolks for a few min.
Add powdered sugar and mix until it gets thick and fluffy, about 5-7 min. 
Combine with the butter mixture.
Dip each meringue into cream. 
Arrange on the plate, so it looks like a mountain. Add raspberries and nuts. 
 Mine was a square plate so mine was like a pyramid:)))

  4. Lea, one question, would the cream turn out ok if i only use 1 stick of butter instead of 2? I just dont like too much butter in creams
