Beat the egg whites at medium speed and gradually add the sugar until the mixture has a shaving foam-type texture.
Then gently sift in the confectioner’s sugar with a spatula.
Using a piping bag with an 8mm round nozzle, pipe out it into evenly sized rows across the tray’s width.
Then use a piping bag with a sultane nozzle to pipe out some 7.5cm swirls.
Bake in a fan-assisted oven for 1½ hours at 175°F (80°C).

40g Sugar

10g Honey

Mix using an immersion blender to form a perfect emulsion.
Beat the cold heavy cream until it has a frothy, light texture.
