“Pretty Pastel Meringues”
1hr 20mins
18 meringues

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 egg whites
  • 225 g caster sugar
  • food coloring, gel (pink, orange, and purple)
  • vanilla flavoured frosting


  1. Preheat the oven to gas 1/4, 110C, fan 90C and line a large baking sheet with nonstick baking paper. Using an electric whisk, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar 1 tbsp at a time, beating well with each addition, until the mixture is smooth, thick, and glossy. Continue whisking for 3-5 minutes until the mixture is firm and retains its shape.
  2. Divide the mix between 3 bowls. Add a few drops of one gel colour to each bowl, stirring to gently colour, so that you have 3 different coloured mixes.
  3. Spoon the colours into 3 separate piping bags fitted with a star nozzle. Pipe 12 small, walnut-sized rosettes of each colour onto the lined tray, leaving space for spreading. Bake for 45 minutes, or until firm. Turn off the oven and leave to cool in the oven until completely cold.
  4. Remove from the paper then stick 2 meringues together with a heaped teaspoon of vanilla frosting, repeating until you have 18 sandwiches.
