Folding is a method whereby a light airy mixture such as whipped egg whites are combined with a heavier mixture such as chocolate custard in a gentle and delicate fashion. To fold properly, the lighter mixture is placed on top of the heavier in a large bowl.

Turn the bowl a quarter turn and repeat the process until the two mixtures are carefully combined.
