Make Ahead -
All the components of the Eton Mess can be made up to two days before. Keep the fruit and the mascarpone cream separately in the fridge. The meringues should be kept in an airtight tin. Assemble the Eton Messes directly before serving. Mascarpone Cream
- I recommend hand whisking the double cream. It turns from light and billowy to stiff and heavy very quickly so you want utter control when you are whisking. Always under whisk if you are unsure.
