About this Bake
This is a Mary Berry recipe and was featured as a technical challenge in The Great British Bake Off (Series 6).
The hardest part is the boiled icing. It can be difficult to get the meringue smooth and not granular. I recommend beating the egg whites, cream of tartar and sugar over a pan of boiling water to achieve optimal smoothness.
