Instructions
  1. Get the ice-cream out the freezer to soften slightly.
  2. Get a large cake tin and line it with 2 sheets of cling film.
  3. Break up your meringues into bite size pieces.
  4. Add the ice-cream, chopped strawberries and 1/2 of the meringue into a bowl and combine gently. Swirl in the compote (but not too much).
  5. Add into the cake tin. Cover with cling film and place in your freezer overnight.
  6. Gently melt the white chocolate on a bain-marie. Tip the ice-cream cake out and peel off the clingfilm.
  7. Pour the melted white chocolate over the ice-cream cake spreading it out and over the edges as you go.
  8. Decorate with fresh strawberries and spare meringue pieces. Serve and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

If you want to make your own meringues I can really recommend Felicity Cloake's recipe from her book 'Perfect'. The sugar is warmed in the oven and gives it an incredible toffee flavour.
