  5. In a small bowl with mixer at high speed, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; beating at high speed, gradually sprinkle in 1/2 cup sugar; beat until sugar is completely dissolved- whites should stand in stiff peaks; spoon mixture into bowl with lime mixture.
  6. In a small bowl with mixer at medium speed, whip the cream; gently fold with beaten egg whites into lime mixture.
  7. Pour into prepared soufflé dish; chill until firm, at least 3 hours; carefully remove foil collar and garnish with remaining peel.
