  • 8 egg whites
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fairy floss essence (optional)
  • 8 3/4 ounces white chocolate, melted
  • Sprinkles for decoration
  • 1 teaspoon each of pink, purple, blue, green, and yellow food gel


  1. Whip Egg Whites:
    • In a stand mixer, whisk egg whites until frothy. Gradually add sugar and continue to mix on high for 4 minutes or until the mixture is thick and glossy.
  2. Color the Meringue:
    • Divide the meringue among 5 bowls. Add a different color food gel to each bowl and mix until uniformly colored.
  3. Prepare for Piping:
    • Transfer each colored meringue into separate piping bags. On a large sheet of plastic wrap, pipe 20 cm lines of each colored meringue next to each other. Wrap into a log and twist one end to seal.
  4. Pipe Meringues:
    • Cut off the tip of the other end and place the log into another piping bag fitted with a Wilton 6B tip. Pipe swirls onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake:
    • Preheat the oven to 200°F (95°C). Bake the meringues for about 1-1.5 hours or until they are dry and crisp.
  6. Decorate:
    • Once cooled, drizzle with melted white chocolate and add sprinkles for decoration.


  • Utensil Cleanliness: Ensure that all utensils, especially the mixing bowl and whisk, are completely grease-free to achieve stiff peaks with the egg whites.
  • Coloring: Use gel food coloring for vibrant colors that won’t affect the texture of the meringues.
  • Cooling: Let the meringues cool in the oven with the door slightly ajar to prevent them from cracking.


  1. Can I make meringues on a humid day?
    • It’s best to avoid making meringues on very humid days as moisture can prevent them from drying properly and getting crisp.
  2. How long do meringues last?
    • Properly stored in an airtight container, meringues can last up to two weeks at room temperature.
