- Set the egg white and 2 tbsp of sugar removed from the 700g in a freestanding mixer bowl with a whisk attached.
- Soak the gelatine in cold water.
- In a large saucepan place the sugar glucose and water together. Slowly bring to the boil (do not stir), brushing down the sides frequently with water to prevent crystals forming. Cook the mixture till the thermometer reads 125C- Hard ball stage.
- Once the right temperature has reached, remove from heat and squeeze out excess water from the gelatine. Add the gelatine and stir.
- Whisk the egg whites on full speed till light and foamy. Reduce the speed to low and slowly stream the gelatine sugar mixture into the bowl being careful not to make the mixture touch the whisk. Whisk on full till the mixture begins to thicken and cool down.
- Spoon a 1/3 of the mixture into the tin. Add 2 tbsp of berry puree to the bowl mix and whisk to combine. Add a 1/3 of this mix on top of the white mixture and spread.
- Add the remaining puree to the mix in the bowl and whisk to combine. Spread the mixture on top and allow the mixture to set overnight.
- Cut into cubes and coat in the corn flour icing sugar mixture.
