However the islands were a huge disappointment. Basically they resembeled poached egg whites and were not appetizing. After putting them in the fridge to cool I googled a few other recipes for the islands and there were the key words. beat until stiff. Dori only mentions satiny glossyness. Thats when I stopped and well yeah it was more like floating rubber life rings than islands.
I thought about re making the islands but time as always was an issue so I hoped the caramel would help.
Here they are looking all rubbery
Oh well its actually a good thing that the dessert doesn't make me want to eat more of it!
Be sure to check out the rest of the TWD group and see there (probably more successful) attempts at this dessert.
