So with only three days to go until the wedding, I spent the day making 50 meringue nests. They turned out bigger than what I wanted. They are the size of the saucer and 2 1/2 high. Quite a mouth full. They taste yummy and with cream and fresh strawberries will be perfect as one of the deserts. They are easy to make. Just 4 egg whites and 1 1/4 cups of caster sugar. You just put all of it into a bowl and beat for 15 minutes. No adding the sugar slowly spoon full by spoon full. Just set your mixer on high and go and whip a quick scrapbooking layout and come back to find it thick and ready to put on the tray. Cook for a couple of hours at 120. Sue has asked for my sausage roll recipe and German relish recipe. I will put it up next week, when things settle down. Tomorrow more finger food. Whipping cream with vanilla yogurt for the brandy baskets and raspberry sauce to make. A bit more cleaning of house and then collapse into bed. On the back front or is that a back to front way of putting it! Holding up is all I can say, very stiff and sore but no spasms.
Will post again
thanks for stopping
