Buche Lemon Meringue (lemon meringue roulade) Brazo de limon y merengue


This was the dessert I made for  New Year Eve.
A buche de Noel cream filling topped with meringue lemon.
Fresh and delicious.
The photos were evening before dinner so sorry.
But if I could not take photos there would be nothing the next day!
And so it was!
I run a lot that day. But anyway !.
As my mom says it's a relief when finally  spent Christmas and New Year (although we love so much)
This dessert can be made in any season and can be garnish with frozen berries.
I used  some cherries I had!.
Happy New Year to all!

Este fue el postre que hice para Año Nuevo, un postre fresco y rico, es que a mi me encanta el limón y la combinación merengue, limón es muy buena.
Lo adorné  con cerezas pero es un postre que se puede hacer en cualquier época y adornar con frambuesas u otros frutos que se tengan.

Feliz Año Nuevo a todos!!
