After Eight Meringues by claremanson After Eight Meringues by claremanson
This is the second baking session with the after eight pieces, the first being the cookies. This time round chocolate meringues with crushed after eight mcflurry pieces in the mixture.

I never even dreamed of making meringues with with after eights until today. My other half was making burgers and asked me if i want his left over egg whites for meringues. I agreed but got to thinking, been there done that so typed in leftover egg whites into google (darn i love google!) Eventually something caught my eye, meringue cookies. Basically meringues with pecans or other nuts and dried fruits mixed into it. Then reading comments on recipes i found people using chocolate chips. Bingo, light bulb flash moment, instead of chocolate chips, i could use the after eight pieces.

I was going to leave them plain but they needed something, a little bite. So out with the after eights yet again. I melted them then dipped the meringue bottoms in the chocolate and to finish off s=drizzled more of the chocolate over the top. Done!

So far...

i didnt take any shots of this bought cake - but i do have in my dessert gallery cakes i have made in the past

this mousse cake isnt as good at home as it is at the resturant bec. we have to freeze it and then cut a piece and let it sit - its a bit weird ><

i like the more birthday cake ones - yellow or white cake with frosting.
my tardis cake tasted really good - i just dont recomend fondant - it tastes bad XP
Duff's cake mix - i doubt they have it in england but not sure - but his mix is super tasty!

no we don't get duff cake mix here, when i am decorating cake thats the only time i will buy cake mixes as i dont want to be stuck in the kitchen all day so i normally buy betty crocker mixes. yeh i don't like fondant much but that is what i will have to use for mine to get the design i want

LuffyNoTomo Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012
yea - lets just hope your fondant is better then what they have here X_X mine really sucks

but i also saw online that you can make your own fondant - that might taste better than store bought or it might also be easier to work with - i have yet to try it myself

good luck~! and i cant wait to see it --- im taking on this big sowing project >< i didnt find the doctors green coat so im trying to make one but the one i found that looked good is advance and im a novice @_@ oh well - im giving it a go XD

i'm not a huge fan of after either but without the cream center they not very minty and just taste like dark chocolate :)

It's okay :]

Hey, it just struck me: if you suppose that Meringue is a name of an alcoholic drink, the title becomes rather amusing.) Makes me picture someone very drunk and funny-looking .))
