    This looks amazing! If I am making the cake ahead of time, should i spread the meringue on it & torch or will it go soggy in fridge?

    Should i spread the meringue on it, refrigerate and torch just before serving?

    Will the meringue harden up quickly?

    I was planning on doing a trifle brownie cake, should I omit the ingredients that would need refrigeration to better suit the meringue? I need this done in advance as I don’t want to spend the evening making & torching the meringue. Any suggestions welcome!
