Place the cream, rose water and vanilla sugar in a bowl and whip until thick, adding red colouring a drop or two at a time until the cream is a rosy pink colour.

Into serving glasses place a layer of meringue pieces, then a layer of cream, then a layer of strawberry mixture. Repeat the layers then decorate with a swirl of fairy floss and mint sprig.
