An actual disaster. Oh my.
I just thought you should know, yesterday was an unmitigated disaster in the kitchen. I tried making custard-filled meringues, and I learned (too late) that you can make neither custard nor meringue with honey instead of white sugar. Some recipe substitutions just don't translate from dry to wet ingredients.
And no, I won't be posting any pictures. The custard tasted fine but never thickened; the meringues were so thin and liquid that I never even tried baking them.
Next time I will do better!
(Sometimes they have bad days. Even in Australia.)
