toasted meringue

The much appreciated holiday gift of our very own blowtorch came in quite handy this week when mountains of meringue were whipped up in the Kitchen Aid to frost an impromptu layer cake. Seven-minute frosting is always fun, but with the addition of actual fire, the toasted marshmallow waves and ripples created with the blowtorch conjure up so many wonderful dessert memories – from s’mores around the campfire to that amazing childhood fancy restaurant treat – baked Alaska! So fun to make and pretty freakin’ cool to serve – we recommend toasting meringue the next time cake baking is on the agenda.

    Oh wow. Can you save me a slice? Can I commission you for a wedding cake?

  2. Sadly, no slices left of this cake. But if you want a meringue covered wedding cake, just let us know!

    Is that 3/4 cup of caster sugar or???

    • Great catch, Angela! Yes, it is 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons of caster sugar 🙂 So sorry we’ve inadvertently left off the “cup” and will revise the typo as soon as we finish our tv shoot this week. Many thanks for noticing this and bringing it to our attention. Hope you enjoy your meringue and all our very best, m&j

      • Hi, Angela – fyi: we fixed the post and want to thank you again for bringing this omission to our attention 🙂 All our best, m&j
