When I created the Keto Vanilla Cake I sent the recipe out to a few people to come up with some different versions to show the versatility of this recipe. We had loads of great options created. It really is a great low carb cake recipe that can be used for any occasion. The original recipe also includes all the steps for a keto Thermomix® Vanilla Cake as well for all our thermo lovers.

Jacquie certainly took this cake to a whole level with by creating the meringue wreath. Teaming it with our Lemon Curd and Keto Pavlova recipe in this beautifully piped wreath is pretty sensational isn’t it!

Tips for meringue wreath:

Draw 10 x 6cm circles on a large baking sheet. Place pen side down onto tray

Spray baking sheet with oil and wipe excess off.

Put a dob of meringue in corners to stabilize the sheet.

Make sure there are no spaces in the meringue wreath. Pipe meringue in different styles in a round mini wreath making sure the meringue is touching as this will be lifted onto the top of the cupcakes.
