It’s time to make space for the new tasty trend in the baking and entertaining world: meringues! There are so many creative ways to use with meringues, and they will be loved by kids and adults alike.

The best thing about meringues? They’re not tough to make and always look the part.

1. Meringue kisses:

Meringue kisses or drops are the perfect bite-sized treat to serve at a garden party or on your dessert table. Present them on a cake stand or even in individual bags as party favours.

2. Meringue sandwiches:

This is a creative take on presenting your meringue kisses. Stick two of the kisses together, back to back, using whatever delish ‘glue’ you please – could be raspberry cream or Nestlé Caramel Treat. We love the mini versions and, of course, what is better that one meringue? Two! We especially love the meringues below:

3. Meringue pops: 

Now, if cake pops were never really your thing, maybe we’ll be able to sway you with these meringue pops! Just fit a little stick on the end of your meringue et voilá!”
