- 2tbsp lemon curd
- 3 mini meringue shells, roughly crumbled
- 3 lemon sherbets, chopped
- few pieces of candied lemon peel

- Make the drizzle cake recipe, swapping the orange ring and juice for lemon rind and juice to give it a lemon twist.
- Once the cake has cooled, drizzle over a little of the lemon curd then scatter over the crumbled meringue, lemon sherbet pieces and the candied peel.
- Drizzle over the rest of the lemon curd. Slice to serve.
