This is round 2 of my quest for the best cotton candy flavoring.
You may remember my cotton candy mints recipe where I tried
the LorAnn Cotton Candy Flavor. In my humble opinion, the
Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Flavor Mix tastes much more
like cotton candy and colors your creations a lovely shade of blue!
I made meringues and piped 2 different shapes using the same tip -
Wilton 2D - little star shapes and rose swirls. After I piped them onto my
sheets of parchment I sprinkled them with some pretty nonpareils.
I loved the texture of the meringue mixture and the
baked meringues were very nice & crisp. They
held up quite nicely to being moved about so
much for the pictures!
The cotton candy flavoring gave the meringues
such a pretty color. They looked lovely with the pink polka dots
on my vintage hankie! (I try to sneak in as many of my
vintage fabrics as I can in my photos!)
Cotton Candy Meringues
adapted from make-fabulous-cakes
1/2 cup egg whites (120g) or 4 large egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp (115g) granulated white sugar
1 packet Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Flavoring
1 cup (115g) lightly spooned powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F and place a piece of
parchment paper on a cookie baking sheet.
Whisk egg whites in a bowl until frothy. Add
cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form.
Slowly add the granulated sugar and whisk
until the meringue reaches stiff peaks.
Beat in the Duncan Hines Cotton Candy
Flavoring packet. Fold in the powdered sugar.
Place the meringue in a piping bag with your tip
of choice and pipe on to the baking sheet. Bake for
2 hours. Alternatively, bake for 1 hour and leave
in the turned off oven overnight.
I liked the size of the little star shaped meringues. So cute!
They would make nice little nibbles for any Tea Party!
Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!! xo!
