Preheat oven to 350°F.

Combine cake mix and margarine or butter until crumbly. Press into bottom of an ungreased 8” square pan. Bake 8 - 10 minutes. Prepare pudding mix as directed on package for a pie. Spread pudding over cooled crust.  Increase baking temperature to 400°F.  Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually add remaining sugar, beating until soft peak forms. Spread over pudding. Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool to room temperature then refrigerate.
