COSMIC MERINGUES

Just as I was wondering what to do with the remaining gallons of Wilton black food coloring I have, Destiny 2 was released and it hit me: cosmic meringues. I make meringues a lot. In fact, they’re my go-to party dessert because everyone loves them and they look lot harder to make than they are, especially if you throw in a bit of food coloring. The only downside to these meringues is that if you eat more than one, you’ll end up looking like a sullen goth with terrible dental hygiene. Eyes up, Guardian!

Note: I used Wilton Black, Christmas Red. and Sky Blue gels and Wilton Gold mix sprinkles

  1. Preheat your oven to 200F and line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine eggwhites, cream of tartar, vanilla, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form.

  5. Using a spatula, fill the piping bag with meringue and pipe 2-inch stars, approximately 1 inch apart on your prepared cookie sheet, moving the tip in small circles as you pipe.
  6. Bake for 90 minutes, then turn off the oven an let sit for another 30-60 minutes to cool gradually, then remove form the oven, transfer to a wire rack and continue to cool.
