  • Combine egg white, sugar, lemon juice and corn syrup in a metal bowl over barely simmering water.
  • Cook, whisking constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture registers 160 F, 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and whip on medium speed until soft peaks form, about 5 minutes.
  • Increase speed to medium high and whip until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Add lemon zest during last minute of whipping.
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Place cooled cake on a baking sheet and spread over the top of the cooled cake, swirling decoratively.
  • Wearing oven mitts, hold iced cake under the broiler to brown the top, turning frequently for even browning, until icing top is an even golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Be careful not to burn!
