"Sans Rival a very yummy layered dessert. Each layer is topped with a nice amount of icing like filling and cashews on top. This recipe is definitely for cashew lovers out there!"

cream of tartar
chopped cashews, toasted
I love sans rivals and this recipe is a keeper. for those who doesn't have cream of tartar you can use (for 4 egg whites)1/2 tbsp vinegar, and 2 tbsp of cornstarch, add it in one tbsp at a time after egg white are already incorporated with sugar and is already stiff and glossy. this procedure helps stablelize the meringue. For the butter cream i just whipped up one brick (around 250g) 100% butter at room temp.(make sure you're not using margarine, cuz it would taste funny) until light and fluffy, added 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, a pinch of salt, 1 tbsp vanilla and 1/4 cup ground cashews then fold in 1/4 cup WHIPPED Cream. i find this twist gives a lighter nuttier butter cream. for those having some trouble with the meringue sticking, try cooking it a bit longer to make sure the bottom of the meringue is dry so you can easily peel away the parchment or aluminum foil (wax paper doesn't work for me).
i am having a problem of removing the baked merangue crust from the parchment paper...what should i do with it??? i live in a dry climate and im not sure if it has to do with it. I also used the "grease and flour" method but i really couldnt get the shell out of the pan...i fallowed the instructions carefully...is there any technique ???
This recipe taste great! It can be very hard to make on the first try. There's one thing very important that was left out about the buttercream, and that is, after you mix the egg yolk and sugar mixture on high speed you need to chill it after that. Then when it's chilled you may mix in the butter spoonfulls at a time. If you don't do that the buttercream will come out liquidy. Also another mistake I made on my first try was trying to use wax paper. DO NOT USE WAX PAPER! Parchment paper is great! Thanks for the recipe I will definitely make many more times.
The buttercream filling is way too sweet and 'heavy'. I've tasted Sans Rival where the
filling is truly light. There's got to be a trick to get the filling light aside from beating the butter until light and fluffy. I used a heavy duty stand mixer and still ended up with a 'heavy' filling.
This is my second time baking this using the same recipe but this time I used real buttercream icing suggested by one of the reviewer from the Philippines. I whipped 1c.unsalted butter until light and fluffy add 1/4 c. of powdered sugar a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of clear vanilla. The icing is not too sweet just right for the very sweet meringue. I added 1/2c. almond (chopped)in the icing and freeze it before eating. It reminds me of Goldilocks sansrival . Just a tip , I greased and flour the foil and baked the meringue for 10-13 more minutes,adjust oven rack in the middle and rotate the pan halfway. Remove the meringue while its hot and place them on a wire rack to cool.Thanks for the recipe. I think the yolk and butter mixture for the icing is way too sweet and heavy.
This recipe is great but i tried adding 1/2 cup all purpose flour in the meringue mixture. After beating the egg whites, fold in the flour and the nuts, this made it easier to handle, plus after the meringue is cooked, try putting a very damp cloth a the back of the meringue for about a minute and i was able to tear the parchment paper easily. I love this recipe will will surely make it again.
Excellent, rich dessert. The preparation is involved and not for the novice, but well worth all the work. The buttercreme filling is exquisite.
a wonderful recipe!! i added an extra five to ten minutes to the meringue baking time, and found that a crisper shell made it easier to handle. it also makes for an interesting play of textures-- a crunchy top with a firm and chewy center. magnificent!
