  • Egg Whites: 8
  • Caster Sugar: 1 cup
  • Fairy Floss Essence: 1 teaspoon (optional)
  • White Chocolate: 8 3/4 ounces, melted
  • Sprinkles: for decoration
  • Food Gels: pink, purple, blue, green, yellow (1 teaspoon each)


  1. Prepare the Meringue:
    • In the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk the egg whites until frothy.
    • Gradually add the sugar and continue mixing on high for 4 minutes until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  2. Color the Meringue:
    • Divide the meringue evenly among five bowls.
    • Color each with a different food gel (pink, purple, blue, green, yellow).
  3. Pipe the Meringue:
    • Transfer each colored meringue to separate piping bags.
    • On a large sheet of plastic wrap, pipe 20 cm lines of each colored meringue next to each other.
    • Wrap up into a log, twisting one end. Cut a piece off the other end.
    • Place the meringue log into a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 6B tip.
  4. Bake the Meringues:
    • Preheat the oven to 200°F (95°C).
    • Pipe swirls of meringue onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
    • Bake for 1.5 to 2 hours or until the meringues are crisp.
  5. Decorate and Serve:
    • Once cooled, drizzle with melted white chocolate and add sprinkles for a fun and festive look.


  • Egg Whites: Ensure the egg whites are at room temperature to achieve maximum volume when whipped.
  • Food Coloring: Use gel food coloring for vibrant colors without affecting the texture of the meringue.
  • Baking: Keep the oven door slightly ajar using a wooden spoon to allow moisture to escape, ensuring crisper meringues.

  2. Can I make meringues in advance?
