  • 2 tablespoons rum
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 2 pieces stem ginger, finely chopped

  • 300ml carton double cream
  • 4 meringue nests, crushed
  • Sprigs of mint, for decoration
  • 6 small serving dishes

Hi I'm not very confident in the kitchen (to say the least!) but this looks easy enough even for me. Is it possible to prepare this well in advance - someone mentioned that meringues may go soggy. Thanks for any advice!
