Lemon Pecan Cloud Cake

Lemon Pecan Cloud Cake

Light as a cloud, this sponge cake features a delicate lemon flavor – the perfect combination with pecans. Featuring an Italian Meringue Buttercream Icing, it looks like a cloud, too – with icing wisps on the sides and swirly rosette borders. And, since you can never have too many nuts, a dusting of additional pecans completes this treat.
