Hello Everyone, I made some little mini meringues and mind you this is my second try today as yesterday I tried to do them but they turned flat and my mistake was I took them out of the oven because they looked great high and perfect colour but within 5 mins they turned flat, why because I didn’t leave them in the oven after they were cooked to let it set. I guess you have days that it doesn’t turn out and it just wasn’t my day! can you relate? so I got up early tried again!. It was my second attempt because I had this picture in my head, I wanted to achieve this, it worked and I felt so happy although I’m not a good icing piping bag lady! Yet, I tryed and I guess that’s how real life is when you fail do it again and that feeling by achieving is so rewarding feeling we learn by mistakes and everyday is a new day. Here we are this platter has mini meringues with fruit around like Christmas creation with some strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries and kewi fruit and when I was ready to serve this plate I then put some passion fruit over the little meringues and lightly dust the icing sugar over the fruit and some whipping cream aside. It was a lovely platter of joy, healthy and some sweetness of sugar with the cute little meringues. Was beautiful to eat have a wonderful day lisa????
