Repair ceiling with meringue texture

I have a ceiling with a meringue (peaky) texture that has water damage in spots. The water damage has been addressed and now I need to repair the ceiling and paint. What compound do I use, and what technique should I use to get the desired texture?

Can You supply a pic of the texture you wish to match?

I would consider hiring a pro to do this, as matching texture can be difficult to do. If you want to try yourself, practice first on waste material like cardboard until you're able to achieve the look you desire.

haven't heard of/seen that one but...

I'm assuming it's like the top of a lemon meringue pie

There are a few textures I don't mind repairing, and a few that I really won't touch (I can't make it look good)
I wouldn't even begin to think there would be a relatively easy DIY way to tough up a lemon meringue pie looking texture

Sounds yummy though
