Buy disposable piping bags and snip off the ends. No need for a nozzle to pipe these sugary bites.
✱ 4 egg whites
✱ 225g (8oz) white caster sugar
✱ 1tsp cornflour
✱ 1tsp cider vinegar
✱ Red, yellow, green, blue and violet paste colour
You Will Need:
✱ 6 disposable piping bags
✱ 2 baking sheets lined with baking parchment
1 Heat oven to 100°C or Gas Mark ¼. Crack the egg whites into a clean bowl, ideally of an electric freestanding mixer and whisk to form stiff peaks. The egg whites are ready if you can turn the bowl upside down and they don’t move.
2 Continue whisking the whites, adding the sugar 1tbsp at a time, to make a stiff, glossy meringue. Stir in the cornflour and vinegar once all the sugar is added
3 divide the meringue into six bowls, add a dot of colour to each bowl and a dot each of red and yellow to make orange. Stir to evenly combine the colours.
4 Spoon each coloured meringue into a different piping bag and then pipe 2cm (¾in) dots on to the two baking sheets lined with baking parchment.
5 Bake for 1hr, turn off the heat, and leave in the oven for another hour to dry out.
6 arrange the meringues in colour groups to create a stunning rainbow.
