Calendar Cakes

At the eleventh hour I decided to enter the Calendar Cakes  run by Dollybakes and Lauralovescake

This month's challenge is Fruity Bakes.  The banana cake I made yesterday met the challenge, but I thought something with summer fruits would be more appropriate.

I used another recipe from Rachel Allen - Coconut Meringue Roulade, although I didn't have any lemon curd, and used strawberries instead of raspberries.

We found this a bit too sweet and sickly, and the meringue was too soft.  More practice at meringues needed I think. It would be great for a summer barbecue.
