My son is obsessed with all things Anna, Elsa, and Olaf! He loves the movie Frozen so when we wanted to make meringues, we decided to give them a little bit of Frozen flair by coloring them pale teal with snowy sprinkles.
To get this swirly effect, I made the meringue and then added a small dollop of teal gel food coloring to the mixer. I mixed it just a few times so it wasn’t entirely mixed in. Then I carefully lopped the meringue into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
I used a medium-sized star tip to pipe the trees. (Hint: if your star tip is too big, use a needle-nosed pliers to pull the pointy bits closer towards the center.) If the meringue is stiff enough, it is pretty easy to pipe the trees in one motion. A few sprinkles before baking, and you’ve got some tasty meringue trees that Elsa would love!
