I’m all excited these days as I’ve started to organise Bee’s 5th birthday party so I’m super busy getting ideas from Pinterest, deciding what to bake, what games to do, how to organise the mini cupcake decoration session which I’m planning do to in between cake and games during her birthday.. many many things, and obviously I am loving it!
So far we only got the theme of the party and NOPE it’s not Frozen!!!! HURRRRAAAAYYYY!!!Bee has developed a liking for My Little Pony which I think it’s a fun, colourful and well… different cartoon! So the theme is set! Good! Now because of this theme I found myself googling rainbow cakes, rainbow decorations, sweets and while in the process, I came across of a picture that totally captured my attention: rainbow meringues!
They look loovely and super inviting so I decided to give it a go this week-end as I had some egg whites left in the fridge. I have to admit that in the past I’ve never been too keen on meringues as I think the texture is a bit funny for me.. I mean I get a weird feeling in my teeth when I bite meringues (just me?!!?)
BUT because they look sooo good, I had to make a batch!
I found a great video tutorial online which I followed to the letter to see if I could really achieve the characteristic outer crispness typical of a meringue and the gooey bit in the inside. It worked!
I honestly never tasted meringues so delicious in my life! They are sweet but not sweet enough to stop eating them! Once you bite one you would NOT stop! Super yummy!
The recipe again, very easy, you just need to weight your egg whites and double the amount of sugar. Whisk them until you get a shiny consistency with hard peaks and you are ready to pipe them.Delicious! I’ll definitely make diffferent colours meringues for Bee’s party as they will look good on the dessert table along with other fun coloured desserts I’m planning to bake. Let’s get working!
