Ingredients

Meringue Nests

  • 4 egg whites room temp
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 3 tsps cornflour
  • 1 tsps white vinegar

To Decorate

  • 250 ml thickened cream
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • Food dye
  • Easter eggs

Instructions

Meringue Nests

  • Preheat oven to 150°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add the sugar, beating well until the mixture is glossy and the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the cornflour and vinegar and fold through.
  • Transfer mixture to piping bag with a nozzle attached and pipe round nest shapes around 10cm in diameter onto the parchment paper.
  • Place in the oven, reduce the heat to 120°C and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Then turn the oven off and allow the meringues to completely cool in the oven.

To Decorate

  • Divide the cream and icing sugar into 2 separate bowls along with a few drops of food dye (I used pink and blue).
  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream and icing sugar until soft peaks form and the right colour is achieved.
  • Top each pavlova with the pastel whipped cream and a few Easter eggs.
