Vita Viviano D'Artega

2 eggs, separated

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
2 eggs
1/2 cup Amaretto liqueur
6 maraschino cherries
Glaze (recipe below)

In a small bowl, beat 2 egg whites until foam. Gradually add brown
sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Fold in
coconut and ground nuts. Spread meringue on bottom and up sides
of generously greased 10-inch tube pan to within 1 inch of the top
of the pan. In large bowl, blend cake mix, sour cream, Amaretto,
water, whole eggs, and remaining 2 egg yolks at low speed until
moistened. Beat 2 min. at high speed. Pour batter evenly on top
of meringue in pan.

Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes until done (use toothpick test).
Cool upright in pan for 10 minutes. Loosen sides and invest into
serving plate. Cool completely. Spoon glaze over top of cake,
allowing some to run down sides. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tsp.
ground nuts and garnish with cherries.

2 Tbsp Amaretto liqueur
2 to 4 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. corn syrup
