Add one more layer of cake on top
Boil water in a saucepan
Combine the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in your mixer bowl
Put your bowl over the hot water and mix till sugar is dissolved and mixture is hot to touch (don't cook the eggs!)
Then with a whisk attachment, whisk till nice and stiff and fluffy
Add meringue to a piping bag fitted with a 2 D tip. If you want to skip this step, you can use a spatula to spoon meringue all over and use a palette knife to make pretty swirls.
Take ice cream and cake out of pan and put on your serving dish.
