I started the day before with the meringue layers,(which are just like forgotten cookies), and the peppermint syrup.
Day two I made the chocolate cake and the chocolate buttercream. Then it was just a matter of putting all of the 12"x4" pieces of cake, meringue, peppermint syrup, and chocolate buttercream together.
Here goes on a meringue layer.
It looked very pretty when we cut into it.
