meringues

perhaps this blog entry is a bit premature - the meringues are still in the oven - but i'm excited by a bit of sweet pastel goodness for our easter trip to yorkshire.

i'm making meringues. s informs me that "mer-in-gyoos" is the proper pronunciation for these tiny treats. so be it.

i asked s to choose his own special shape and colo(u)r. i present the green mer-in-gyoo gingerbreadman.

hmmm. not entirely convincing, is it? hopefully the fully baked version will be less...pointy. stay tuned.

***later***

oh dear, slightly disappointing result. where did the color go?

and the gingerbreadman. oh no... at least he came off all in one piece!

i hope this doesn't mean you're eating them while i'm not around :)

in the interests of full disclosure, i should mention that the gingerbreadman's neck broke while i was attempting to move him to a safer spot. ouch. it had nothing to do with my general clumsiness. really.
