There are not a lot of treats that are sweeter nor lighter than a crisp and chewy meringue. Pair them with luscious berry mousse and you have the perfect summertime dessert. Tessa Huff here, from Tessa Huff Cake Design, and I have a secret to share: I love meringue. Use it to create silky smooth buttercream, whip it to make the perfect macaron, or bake it by itself. This Meringue Torte Recipe layers baked meringue cookies with fluffy raspberry mousse and sweet apricot filling to create heavenly individual desserts.
