  • <a href="https://www.patisseriemakesperfect.co.uk/gin-and-tonic-layer-cake/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Lime Curd</a>
  • <a href="https://www.patisseriemakesperfect.co.uk/gin-and-tonic-layer-cake/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Meringue</a>
  • 300 ml Whipping Cream

Instructions
 

  • Whip the cream until it is just firm, don't be tempted to overwhip it. You want it to hold it's shape, but not be too stiff.
  • Take 4 bowls or glasses and put some cream in the bottom of them, break up some meringue and place on top of the cream.
  • Add a spoonful of lime curd and then repeat the process until you have filled the glasses or bowls, finishing with a layer of lime curd.
  • Top with a meringue and a slice of lime or a thin peeling of lime.
  • Alternatively, place all the ingredients in a large bowl and fold gently before dividing between 4 bowls or glasses.
