  • Roll ingredients

  • 200 g (7 oz) egg white

  • A pinch of dry citric acid

  • A pinch of salt

  • 260 g (9.3 oz) powdered sugar

  • 27 g (0.95 oz) cornstarch

  • Orange Curd ingredients

  • 5 yolks

  • 200 ml (7.1 fl oz) orange juice

  • 15 g (0.5 oz) starch

  • 25 g (0.9 oz) butter

  • Cream ingredients

  • 250 g (8.9 oz) Mascarpone cheese

  • 120 ml (4.3 fl oz) 30% fat Cream

  • 72 g (2.6 oz) powdered sugar

  • 5 g (0.18 oz) vanilla sugar (optional)


  • Add a pinch of salt and citric acid to the whites and start mixing at low speed.
  • When the whites foam, start adding powdered sugar in small portions, increasing the speed of the mixer with each addition.
  • Mix the whites for 10-15 minutes until stiff peaks form.
  • Now add starch to the whipped whites and continue mixing at medium speed.
  • Line a tray with baking paper and spread the egg white mixture evenly over it.
  • Bake the meringue in a preheated oven at 150 degrees C° (300 F) for 30-35 minutes.
  • When finished, turn the meringue upside down and lay on a wire rack lined with baking paper. Remove any baking paper stuck to the top and leave it to cool completely.
  • For the curd, take orange juice and mix it with starch until dissolving all lumps.
  • Add yolks and continue mixing
  • Then place the mixture on low heat and cook until thickened.
  • Add butter to the hot mixture and stir until dissolved.
  • Cover the curd with cling film and let it cool completely.
  • For the cream, mix Mascarpone, cream and powdered sugar. The cream should not be too sweet since the meringue itself is already quite sweet.
  • Spread all the cream evenly over the top of meringue layer, then drizzle the curd in strips. I suggest using pastry bags to make it all easier.
  • Roll up the layer and wrap it in baking paper. Let it rest for a couple of hours in the refrigerator to stabilize.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and decorate with your desired toppings or garnishes
