  • 2 Egg Whites
  • ½ Cup Caster Sugar
  • Food Coloring Pen


  • Preheat the oven to 200 and line a large baking sheet with non-stick parchment paper.
  • Beat the egg whites with a mixture on medium speed until they form soft peaks.
  • Slowly whisk in the sugar, a spoonful at a time, and continue to whisk until stiff.
  • Spoon the meringue into a piping bag with a round tip.
  • Pipe ghosts onto the baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 1 hour or until crisp. When they are done they should life easily from the paper.
  • Turn off the heat and leave the meringues in the oven for several hours to firm and dry.
  • Once cooled add eyes and a mouth with a black food coloring pen.
