Personal Notes:
My pans have removable sides which make it a little easier to remove cake from pans. Lining the bottom of the pans with parchment paper may help. Butter the paper. Some recipes say to place meringue side down on serving plate. This method is the way my mother always did it.
My mother made this cake on very special occasions and it always got "WOW comments"
