I managed however to whisk and get the right texture of the whipped cream (yay!) which is a biggie to me because most of the time, I just tend to over-whisk the cream. Full of energy, much? Lol.
Despite surrounded by failure and I was on the brink of throwing it away, I suddenly got an epiphany (gituh! tak kuasa mak!)
Or rather, in my case, when life gives you chewy, limpy-looking meringue...
you make an Eton Mess!
Great dollops of chilled whipped cream, strawberries, blueberries and ruby-like pomegranate seeds and my version of Eton Mess is good to go! On any occasion, I wouldn't dare offering something that is less than perfect for anyone's consumption so I happily dig in and indulge myself.
I am one happy girl. And yes, life is indeed a bliss when you just can look at things positively.
And I am NOT giving up on the pavlova. Not yet.
