Preheat the oven to 100 ºC (200 ºF). Spray 2 large baking sheets with nonstick spray. Line each sheet with a layer of waxed paper and draw a circle 20 cm in diameter on each waxed paper sheet. Dust with a little cornflour. Beat the egg whites and cream of tartar together until soft peaks form. Add the castor sugar by the spoonful while beating continuously. Sift the icing sugar, cornflour and salt over the mixture and fold in. Spread an equal quantity of the mixture on each waxed sheet, covering the circles carefully. Bake for about 1 hour or until dry. Turn off the oven and cool overnight. Place one meringue layer on a serving platter. Slice half the quantity of strawberries in half and arrange on the meringue layer with half the ice cream and cream. Cover with the other meringue layer and decorate with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately. Serves 6-8.
