Get your fancy pants on, we are doing an raspberry pistachio eton mess today with a hit of pretty from some edible flowers.
If you’ve never made or had this, let me start by saying this impressive looking dessert is easy to make.
It’s comprised of just a few components like – whipped cream, fresh fruit, some nuts and meringue. I used store bought meringue to short cut the time, but of course you can make some from scratch like I did here.
I’m sticking to easy Valentine’s dessert for this week, so stay tuned because Friday’s will be even easier than this to make, but every bit as fun, pretty and tasty.
