Cooking Design: Meringue Making

During class, we made baked meringue, which is a type of dessert, easily made with minimal ingredients; egg white and sugar. Below are the steps to make meringue.

  1. Prepare all ingredients.
  2. Crack the egg and separate egg white from the egg yolk. For extra taste, add a small bit of salt.
  3. Using a sieve, sift the powdered white sugar.
  4. Using a hand mixer to whisk the egg white.

  1. Slowly add the powdered white sugar to the meringue mixture in the bowl.

  1. For an extra pop of color, paint on food coloring on the sides of the piping tube.
  2. Put meringue mixture in using spatula, ensuring that too much is not put, to avoid it from spilling.
  3. Squeeze the piping tube and create a swirl on a baking sheet placed on a tray.

  1. Bake in the oven.

Overall, I think the making of this product was successful. The process was relatively smooth; everyone cooperated, diving the tasks in order to be efficient and we were able to make our final product as envisioned. The colors turned out to be quite pretty, and I was satisfied with the taste as well, being a major sweet tooth.

The shape of the meringues were not consistent, which is ideal but considering we are amateurs, I think we did well.
