Hi,

 

I want to get a meringue shaped as on the attached photo.

I tried using a spatula but didn't get the desired effect.Maybe my technique is wrong....

 

Any ideas?

Thanks

It isn't done with a spatula, but instead using a very smooth meringue. Dip tart in upside down and twist slightly as you lift out.
Meringue can be done starting with unbeaten whites in mixer bowl. Add hot sugar syrup all at once and immediately mix on high until max volume, then on low/medium for 20-30 minutes.

Thanks!

 

One more question: In what proportion do you mix whites and sugar? I usually make the italian meringue using 2:1 ratio (sugar:whites). will this work?
