Strawberry Meringue Roulade

What Is a Meringue Roulade?. Meringue roulade is a dessert that consists of rolled egg white meringues mixed with cream and a fruit filling. It is quite a light dessert and is usually eaten in the summer. The meringue roulade might also just contain sponge cake or cake baked in a flat pan rolled around the sugary whipped egg whites and cream. Fruit fillings include strawberries, raspberries, lemon curd and mangoes. It looks and tastes much like a rolled-up version of a Pavlova.
