   Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Cover 2 cookie sheets with baking parchment
   paper or aluminum foil. Draw two 9-inch circles on paper. Whisk the egg
   whites and 1 teaspoon lemon juice in a bowl until they hold soft peaks. Add
   the sugar a spoonful at a time, beating constantly until all the sugar is
   incorporated and the meringue is stiff and shiny. Divide the meringue
   between the two circles on te paper; spread evenly to the edges. Bake for 4
   hours, then turn off oven. Leave the meringues in the oven until they are
   cold. Meringues may be made up ahead of time and stored in cardboard box.
   Chop the chocolate into small chunks. Heat 1 cup of the cream and the
   coffee granules to boiling; drop in the chocolate. Remove from heat and
   stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Allow to
   cool, then chill for 1-2 hours. Beat the chocolate mixture until it
   stiffens and becomes light in color. It should be of spreading consistency.
   Spread the cream on 1 meringue disk and sandwich the 2 meringues together.
   To freeze the disks, put them in the freezer until frozen then wrap in
   foil. To make sauce: defrost the raspberrires. Puree in blender. Strain
   into a freezer container. Stir in 1/4 cup confectioners sugar and remaining
   lemon juice until smooth. Freeze until ready to serve. To serve: defrost
   the cake overnight in refrigerator. Unwrap and set on serving dish. Whip
   the remaining 1/2 cup cream with remaining 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
   until stiff.  Decorate the top with cream and finish with candy beans. Pour
   a puddle of sauce on each plate and set a wedge of cake on top. Jo
