Meringue with Lime Cream and Raspberries - Cake Slice Bakers May 2012

It’s Cake Slice Bakers time of the month once more. I’m flying by the seat of my pants this month and am a day late in posting, as it should have been yesterday. Mind you I’m doing quite well to only be one day late!


Anyhow this month’s make is a pudding or dessert, Individual Meringue Cups with Lime Cream and Fresh Berries. It’s from the Meringue Cakes Chapter of The Cake Book by Tish Boyle published by John Wiley and Sons 2006.

I baked it pavlova style as one biggie, this gave a super chewy inside . It was filled with a delicious lime cream made by making your own lime curd and folding into whipped cream. I used 10 fl oz of double cream instead of the 6fl oz in the recipe. I don’t think I’ve made lime curd before (lemon and passion fruit have appeared in my kitchen before though), it was delicious a little more floral than lemon. The combination of the meringue, lime cream and berries was lovely, a perfect late Spring or Summer dessert.


 
I promise to try and get next month’s bake on the go for the right date, and I’m looking forward to it as it’s something I’ve not made before, though I must keep it under my hat for now. Until then though I’m off to see how my fellow Cake Slice Bakers got on, click here for the blogroll if you fancy doing the same.

Looks delicious, lime cream what a great idea perfect to offset the sweet berries. Good job.
