Gateau Basque aux cerises noires
This tart is a regional French desert that I saw being made at work this week but due to my clumsiness, the recipe didn't work out, therefore I plan to bring this one in as an apology... I'll let you know how it's received by the Chefs!

Lemon Meringue Tart is my Moms' favourite dessert although I'm not very keen, I personally find the candied lemon zests on top the best part!
It's a sweet pastry base (made with icing sugar not caster sugar as it makes it so much more delicious), a lemon curd centre (eggs, sugar and lemon juice whisked on water bath till thickened) and a meringue topping (I cheated by doing a French meringue but an Italian meringue -if you have the time- would be best) all finished off with candied lemon zest (twice brought to the boil then candied in a simple syrup).

It was our friends daughter's birthday, she was turning seven so wanted something a little bit more grown up but still girlie so I wanted to practice... What do you think?
The ribbon around the bottom is from a beautiful ribbon shop in the Jewish Quarter called "Entree des Fournisseurs"... But be warned, if you take photos you will be asked to leave the shop.
Next week: Lemon Meringue Tart!
