Spanish Windtorte

windtorteSo I decided to have a go at the technical challenge from this week’s GBBO, all very last minute and rushed (slightly cheating because it’s all normal meringue but here it is in all it’s sugary glory. It’s made with traditional meringe, 50g sugar to 1 egg whitewith an extra 50g of sugar so in this case 6 egg whites to 350g sugar, I made the base and top first, then the 3 rings for the sides. The remaining meringue I used round the edge, my oven was too hot initially hence the darker coloured top, I cooled itdown to finish the sides so they are a better colour. Inside is a strawberry and cream filing.windtorte2

    So glad I’m not alone in using all one meringue! Although mine got too warm and I couldn’t decorate as lovely as this! I love the colour contrast yummy x
