I have never made meringue before but I was really confident… alas a well-honed self-esteem is not always enough in the land of egg whites. All was going well, then i took a little too big of a break when trying to get the sugar measured and added and… boom! Flop!
I baked it anyway, even though it was essentially a puddle on a baking tray. What came out did not look like a cake-store window but it tasted wonderful, so I crushed it up, got creative and made little individual deconstructed Pavs, simply layering Pav crumbs, cream and rasberries and mango. Yum! Nice Xmas save!
