This recipe was shared with me by an awesome baker Marina from my church.Her Food always looks SUPER and DELICIOUS! Thank you so much Marina.
Please take note… This cake does require some time to make,I like to split the process in two days. Day 1:Make meringue and custard(store in fridge covered),Day 2: Bake cake,make frosting and assemble.

pinch of salt
pinch of cream of tartar

1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup coffee
1 tablespoon kahlua liquor
1 tablespoon sugar
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Whip egg whites with pinch of salt and pinch of cream of tartar.
Add in sugar slowly while beating.Egg whites need to come to stiff peeks.
Mix nuts with cornstarch and gently fold in to meringue.
Melt chocolate chips and gradually fold in to meringue making a marble effect.Just few turns,don’t over mix.
Reduce oven temperature 250 degrees just before placing the pan in the oven.
Bake for 4 hours. Open door to cool completely before taking it out,so meringue doesn’t crack.
Prepare water bath.Whip egg yolks with 1/2 cup sugar until frothy and place it on water bath.

Beat eggs and sugar together until pale and thick.(15-20min)

In a separate bowl, whip heavy whipping cream until stiff.
Fold in half of whipped cream with cream cheese mixture and leave the rest to decorate the cake.
Slice the cake in half.
Soak cake with coffee syrup using a brush.
Spread cream on the soaked side and add shredded chocolate over it.
Place meringue on top of shredded chocolate and spread more cream over meringue.Add shredded chocolate over cream.
Soak second layer of cake and flip soaked side down.
Cream cake all over. Decorate with toasted hazelnuts and shredded chocolate.
