Preheat oven to 100°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. 2. Place the egg whites in the clean, dry bowl of an electric mixer. Whisk until soft peaks form. 3. Gradually add the sugar, 1 tbs at a time, whisking well after each addition. Continue whisking for 2 mins or until the mixture is thick, glossy and the sugar completely dissolves. 4. Use a piping bag fitted with a 1.5cm plain or fluted nozzle to pipe small meringues onto the lined trays. To vary the shapes, use other decorating nozzles. To make pink meringues, tint a portion of the meringue mixture with red food colouring before piping. To make striped meringues, brush lines of food colouring on the inside of a clean piping bag before filling with white or pink meringue mixture. 5. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 1 hour or until meringues are dry to the touch and crisp. Turn oven off. Leave meringues in oven, with the door ajar, for 1 hour to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. WATCH MORE Want more step-by-step videos so you can make some incredible desserts?
