I have a question about the recipe "Lemon Birthday Cake" from Eric Liftin. At what speed should I whip the eggs whites in a stand mixer?

Since this recipe just calls for getting them foamy I would start at medium-low and then move up to medium. But based on the comments, it looks like you already figured out an answer to this question since you've made the cake—I'm sorry to hear that it was a disappointment.
