Makes2 desserts (15 servings each)
- 6 eggs, separated
- 2 cups sugar, divided

Over the years I have made this MANY times. It has become a staple, and in fact it ha been requested for more than one birthday cake! I have halved it with great success also, but once you try this, you won't regret having another cake in the freezer. I always add more hot fudge, and never chop the peanuts.
