Strawberry and banana shortbread meringue

This has to be the ultimate shortbread no? Did this at the beginning of September. Hard to see maybe - camera viewfinder had broken so we had to hope for the best - they don't last long in this place with so much going on all the time....
Strawberry and banana meringue 'shortbread' - biscuit base like you would use for cheesecake base, buttercream on top, bananas sliced on top, strawberries on top of those and then Italian meringue piped on top and glazed with blow torch. There was a recipe which we had and adapted (originally cream on top instead of meringue), but can't find now - watch this space......
In production - you set the base first then the rest goes on top. We realised afterwards it would be much better to cut out the base into squares, then put the bananas, strawberries and meringue on top once they were cut - much neater. You live & learn!
