Once cooked, leave the meringue in the oven until the oven has completely cooled down. When cool, remove from the oven and peel away the baking paper. Tip: At this stage, make sure the meringue is completely cool before you attempt to peel off the baking paper. Do this step too early and your meringue will crack and break up. Enjoy the looks on your guest's faces when they see your masterpiece!
