Today is the day of my work Christmas party and our mission, should we have chosen to accept it, was to bring something along for the 'photo booth'. This is what I am taking in my work bag.
What I Used:
1 egg white
40g white super fine caster sugar
and then gradually added to a whisked egg white until glossy and firm].
I then lined a tray with baking paper and drew a template beard to place underneath it:
the shape of the template:
by the meringue to ensure it held in place:
....it was then baked in a low heat oven [around 90 degrees C] for 2 hours until crisp and easily lifted from the baking paper [add on more time if the meringue does not remove easily]:
How have we been having Christmas without them?
Wish me luck for getting them all to the party in one piece.
Have a great weekend - we're nearly on the home straight! x
