Preparation

1

Preheat the oven to 110˚C (90˚C fan assisted oven, 225˚F, gas mark ¼). Line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment. Make up the Egg White Powder by empting the three sachets into a large, clean bowl. Add 6 tsps of warm water and beat well to a smooth paste. Add another 12 tsps of warm water gradually and beat well to form a smooth mixture.

2

Whisk until very stiff and dry. Whisk in the caster sugar a little at a time, to make a thick, glossy meringue, then gently mix in the Lemon Extract.

3

Spoon 3 heaped tablespoons of meringue into a small bowl and gently mix in 25 drops of Yellow Gel Food Colour. Divide the remaining meringue between 2 bowls and colour one with 25 drops Pink Gel and the other with 45 drops Violet Gel.

4

Spoon the pink meringue into an uncut piping bag. Using scissors, snip away about 2cm (3/4inch) from the end of the bag and then pipe 6 blobs in a circle to resemble flower petals, about 9cm (3 ¾ inch) diameter on one of the trays, spaced a little apart. You may find it easier to trace flower shapes on the parchment to use as a template; turn the parchment over in order to avoid transferring pencil marks to the meringues. You should be able to pipe 4 pink flowers in this way.

5

Repeat the flower piping using the violet meringue on the other tray to make another 4 flowers. Once the flowers are piped, carefully pipe or spoon yellow meringue in the centre of each using a teaspoon.

6

Bake the meringue flowers in the oven for about 2 hours until the meringues are crisp and dry and still perfectly coloured with no browning – prop the oven door open slightly if they start to discolour. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Your meringues are now ready to serve and enjoy!
