Teenage Daughter has been crowned HRH The Duchess Of Meringue. She has been perfecting her craft and has tested quite a few recipes. The family unanimously agreed that this recipe is a knock-out.
You can find the recipe from Lily Higgins here but it doesn’t give a template or tutorial so you might like to have a close look at HRH’s method.
The impressive bird in the original recipe would feed twelve so HRH scaled down by half. She also thinks it’s worthwhile whisking the egg whites before you add the sugar. She whisked 3 egg whites, added 190g of icing sugar and whisked again until the mixture was glossy.
