edible star decorations (I purchased mine from the supermarket)
Preheat the oven to 120 degrees C. Beat egg whites soft peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar until glossy, firm peaks form. Once the sugar has been incorporated, add the green food colouring until the desired colour is achieved.
Using a spatula, put the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe the meringue onto lined baking sheets in a spiral motion to create a tree shape. I made the base of my spiral about 2cm in diameter. Leave enough room between each tree to allow for the meringues to spread slightly. Top each tree with a star decoration.
Bake in the oven for about 30-45 minutes (actual baking time will depend on the size of your meringues). If you like your meringues spongy and marshmallowly in the center, bake for a shorter amount of time; if you like your meringues dry throughout, bake for a longer amount of time. When ready, turn off the oven and open the door slightly ajar and allow the meringues to cool completely in the oven.
Hi I'm Natalie, 22 year old girl from Paris France, I speak both french and english and also learning a little German on the side. I love to bake and cook things. Also I am currently taking classes at Unviserity and majoring in the Culinary field since it's what I love to do. I would feel totally loved if you followed my Tumblr and I hope you like my recipes I post (mostly from websites since I do most of those) and that if you make them I would love some feedback on how it came out.
