    This worked great, it didn't work for a few other people as you can see in the reviews but as long as you follow the recipe as its given, it works just fine. They were delicious and I will definitely be making them again!!

    Fair amount of work as both meringue and filling have to be made separately, cooled or cooked for an extended period and piped. Tastes delicious for a few minutes after assembly. However, very disappointing overall as the moisture from the ganache softens the meringue to the point of inedibility (as soft as if never cooked!). I had planned to give these as a gift, but they are completely unsuitable for that.
