This came out nicely.. it was liked and guests had no troubles to finish it. But... several were a little apprehensive about the raw eggs in the filling (no egg beaters here in NL) and I would sieve the egg whites next time, just to get out the slighly thicker part of the egg white. For the rest, it was a success and a excellent end to a long leisurely lunch with guests. I forgot to reserve some of the wafers for the top so decorated with a little coco powder instead. I'd like to try this again with peaches ! Thanks!
