Champagne Theme - Jacinta's Dessert (2 of 2)This dessert platter was the final part of the Champagne Dinner.

Meringues

The recipe is based on Nigella’s basic meringue.

I added approx 1 tbsp of finely grated orange zest after all the sugar had been incorporated. I also piped mine onto trays rather than using a spoon. These meringues were the best part of the dessert and I will make again.

Champagne Mousse

The recipe comes from SprinkleBakes blog.

I didn’t love the texture. Probably wouldn’t make again or if I did I wouldn’t freeze it.

Champagne Truffles

The recipe is from Martha Stewart.

I replaced cognac with Cointreau. I also found that the truffles kept absorbing the sugar so they didn’t look as lovely as those on the web – tasted good though!
