These little critters are surprisingly easy to make, so get the kids to help! Perfect for the season.
You will need:
4 Egg Whites
½ tsp of Cream of Tartar
1 cup of Sugar
Black Decorating Icing Gel
a baking sheet
icing bags and large round icing tips
Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites for a few minutes on high speed until they become frothy (you will see lots of little bubbles).
Next, add your sugar in small amounts.
Finally, mix in the cream of tartar.
Continue to whip the mixture until it gets stiff (meaning that it holds a shape when stopped).
Prepare your baking sheet with a layer of foil covered with non-stick spray.
Place the meringue mixture into an icing bag.
Using your icing bag and a large round icing tip, continually press the meringue mixture directly down onto the foil. Press down and lift up to create layered stacks for each ghost (release the pressure just a tiny bit, pulling up on your frosting bag at the same time in between each layer).
Bake them for about 45 minutes or until the tops become a little brown.
Once they are completely cooled, they will harden and be ready to decorate with black gel frosting!
Add eyes and mouths to your ghost (or create silly faces!).
