If you are still looking for inspiration… maybe these easy snowflake meringues?

Snowflake meringues (makes 40) 

2 very fresh eggs whites at room temperature

½ cup castor sugar

2 tablespoons hundreds and thousands

Icing sugar to dust over meringue

  1. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper
  2. Preheat oven to 120°C
  3. Put egg whites into a bowl and beat with electric beater until soft peaks form
  4. Continue to beat and add sugar, one table spoon at a time until egg whites glossy and meringue peaks hold up till firm when beaters lifted out.
  5. Place teaspoons of mixture on trays with room allowed for spreading.
  6. Gently pull out peaks with a back of a spoon to resemble snowflakes
  7. Lightly sprinkle with hundreds and thousands
  8. Reduce temperature of oven to 100°C and place meringues in the oven for 45 mins. Turn off oven and leave in oven with door slightly ajar (use a wooden spoon to prop door open) to cool completely.
