sugar high  
one sunny late arvo a coupla weeks ago, i hung out in salsarina's work neighbourhood and she took me to the kickass local bakery where i saw these kickass meringue offerings...



are they gigantic or what? simply could not resist buying a vanilla enormeringue to try. i must say that my healthy living in the past few months must have re-tuned my tastebuds somewhat (i have a super sweet tooth and like things very salty as well... extremist tastebuds) because although the meringue was very, very good, i found it very, very sweet after i munched down half of it. but maybe that's normal because it's humongous!

probably just the right size for sharing between two or three peeps. :)

though sal says she's had a whole rose meringue before and it rocked.

i want to try that lavender one next!

:)

they look so nice - especially the rose one *dribbles*
JVdrag0nette on September 21st, 2006 01:27 am (UTC)
the rose ones look so good because i managed to catch them at a better angle, slightly higher than the other two. the other two were taken surreptitiously and in a hurry... :p when i got to the third one, i got bolder and took more time. :)

oh my, they look soooo good.

you MUST try the lavendar and rose - when i visited haigh's chocolates in melbourne last time i got a couple of the soft-centred chocolates and the rose and lilac were too die for. the lovely lady gave me a free pistachio one because the nut had fallen off the top!
JV: eatdrag0nette on September 22nd, 2006 09:48 pm (UTC)
mmmmmm... soft-centred chockies are wonderful! putting haigh's in my list of 'to-do's for my next melbourne visit! :)

Woohoo! Type 2 diabetes, here we come!

Seriously, even though they don't look as big as your head, they should be classified as bigger. Did your mother ever tell you not to eat anything bigger than your head?

evil meringue
