I had a look online for different ideas and flavour combinations to try.
One of my favourites for inspiration has become the Meringue Girls instagram.
Based in London they do fantastic colourful meringues.
And having come back from Cake International last weekend i was now stocked up with some brilliant new Foodie Flavours to try out also.
So...armed with my recipe and instructions I set about trying meringues for the first time.
I chose not to use my stand mixer and try it by hand to begin with. I wasn't able to get as stiff a mixture as I needed, but they still turned out rather yummy for a first attempt...
I also kept it simple to begin with using just a strawberry flavour with pink colouring.
These gooey meringues just make you think of the sweets I used to get as a child.
