Christmas-Spiced Orange Meringue Pie
2018 Great British Bake-Off contestant, Dan Beasley-Harling, has created this magnificent Christmas centre piece to ensure this year is extra special. This beautiful meringue pie really is a guaranteed Christmas showstopper, bound to make this year the one.
The pie contains a creamy orange filling spiced with cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, topped with a layer of Italian meringue and beautiful meringue tree decorations!
Dan used his Thermapen One to create the perfect curd filling and meringue.
Take your sugar syrups to 120°C when making Italian meringue, to ensure it holds it shape.
Heating the curd to 82 °C will guarantee that you'll get a good set.
