I love this English concoction of cream, meringue and strawberries. It is such a pretty summery dessert.
But I didn’t quite enjoy the Eton Mess at Oriole Cafe today. I wished it had less meringue and more fruits. Also, the whipped cream was dense and there was too much syrup over it.
I tried making the Eton Mess once at home and it turned out to be a real mess. I went overboard with the cream and we ended up eating eating mounds and mounds of light, fluffy whipped cream.
Edit: Looking at the photos again, the red streaks seem like fresh red blood.
