Scoop ice cream onto sponge making sure it does not go over the edges of the sponge base.

Once the ice scream is on the sponge wrap in cling film and put in the freezer.

While ice cream sets put the 5 egg whites in a bowl and start to whisk or use a mixer, add in Vanilla and lemon juice as it’s whisking. Once mixture starts to become fluff and increases in volume start to slowly add the sugar in until the mixture holds soft peaks or you can hold the bowl over your head and if it stays its ready and if it doesn’t start again.
