Gradually beat Superfine sugar into whites, sprinkling 1 tablespoonful at a time on meringue and beating about 15 seconds for each addition.
With large whisk, fold spoonfuls of flour mixture into meringue slowly and gently.

Invert pan on funnel or suspend over cooking rack.
Allow to hang until cool.
