Using electric beaters, whisk until mixture is thick and glossy, and stands up in firm peaks. Tip in the rest of the sugar, add the vinegar, and continue whisking until thoroughly incorporated.
3 Spread the meringue over the circle, leaving a 1 cm border. Using the back
of a large spoon, make a shallow dip the middle for the filling, then build up the sides as high as you can. using a palette knife to make swirly peaks on top
