“Baiser” (kiss en français) is a term often used for meringues around where I live. And these wonderful little blue-white-striped meringues are real kisses of summer! Their colour reminds me of the sea I saw (and bathed in) in Italy last year…Their size is perfect to use them as little Snacks. Nowadays I bake meringues quite often because I need egg yolks for most of my ice creams and I can use the spare egg whites for lovely little meringues!My really fool-proof recipe for meringues can be found right here. If you want to make these summer kisses you simple choose a round nozzle instead of a star-shaped one and apply food colouring in stripes on the inside of your piping bag before you fill it with the meringue mixture. (You can use a bottle to put the piping bag on it while your apply the colour.) Enjoy the summer – it has only just begun!
I scream, you scream, we scream for ICE CREAM! It’s getting hot – and the hotter it gets, the more ice cream we need!This raspberry ice cream will fulfill all your ice cream dreams – it’s so incredibly fruity and creamy and the colour! Oh my, I think I need some more.
So, think pink and love raspberry ice cream – it’s as simple as that.
By the way – this ice cream goes perfectly with the Blueberry Sorbet I’ve shown you a couple of weeks ago. A really irresistible couple both in taste and making – because you can use the spare egg whites for the Blueberry Sorbet. It seems as if they had been made for each other… ❤
