Making an Eton Mess of GCSEs #Recipe

What better way to celebrate the end of GCSEs than by making an Eton Mess of them! It is A's favourite dessert, and so when Tate & Lyle sent us a pack of their caster sugar to try our hand at making some meringue letters to celebrate the launch of Bake Your Dreams Come True, I thought it was the perfect opportunity for A to smash her GCSEs!

Making Eton Mess is so easy, and it tastes soooo good. We whipped up a batch of meringue using my favourite easy meringue recipe, and piped the letters GCSE on to a tray & baked them, before A gave them a good mash ready to go in our dessert.


• Meringue as per recipe, we used Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar
• Squirty cream (or you can whip some double cream)
• Strawberries
• Double cream


• Mash up your meringue in a bowl until you are left with chunks of varying sizes.
• Cut up your strawberries into halves or quarters depending on their size, and your own preference.
• If you're whipping your double cream, do this and set it to one side.
• Start layering the ingredients in your sundae glasses (or bowls), starting with meringue pieces, then strawberries, before pouring over some double cream.
• Add more meringue and strawberries, before topping off with squirty cream or your whipped double cream, and decorating the top with some sliced strawberries and dusting with some crumbled meringue.


Tate & Lyle Sugars have launched the Bake Your Dreams Come True campaign to inspire budding bakers to follow their dreams, which comes after research that reveals 40% of Brits dream of ditching their day job and starting their own business, with 20% dreaming of opening their own baking business.

There are £1million worth of prizes and rewards to be won, including a £5,000 cash reward for up to five baking entrepreneurs to provide financial support to kick start their baking business. Aspiring bakers can apply for prizes by picking up a participating pack of Tate & Lyle Baking Sugar or Lyle’s Golden Syrup Baking bottles, and submitting their pack code & baking dream at www.tasteandsmile.com/bakingdreams.

We received a complimentary bag of Tate & Lyle Sugar for review purposes. The views shared are my own personal & honest opinions and written in my own words. All links are no-follow.
