My friend and I made a huge batch of Snowman Poo (her name, not mine) recently. Personally, I think it looks more like a Melted Michelin-Man, but that’s just me. ((For those who don’t know of the Michelin-Man, he’s the mascot for a brand of tires.)) Though, now that I think about it, that may be worse than Snowman Poo….
She had a few egg whites left over from baking me some cookies (my body can only tolerate the yoke) so not to be wasteful, we made vanilla meringue. We had no idea 4 whites would make so much!
We started by mixing the whites with sugar, corn starch, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract.
We kept it on the mixer until it got very stiff.
Looks pretty good right?
Then we poured it into a ziplock bag for piping. My friend has a lot of experience with this, as she’s taken cake decorating classes before and makes this recipe a lot, by my skills are somewhat lacking.
So I helped by holding the parchment paper while she piped, because the paper kept wanting to escape from us. After about 10 minutes we had ourselves a small army.
Totaled two large trays worth of poos, with almost every inch of the trays covered. But the nice thing is, meringue doesn’t grown while baking, so we didn’t have to worry about having one big piece on our hands.
So once we had our little army, we marched them into the oven for about an hour and a half. Unfortunately, my phone died soon after, so I have no pictures of the finished product, but take my word for it: they looked good. Real good.
I took some home for my mom and according to her, they were delicious.
