Party! Party! Party! Party! Party! Party!
Ok, so Halloween is not officially here yet, but my students don’t have school the day of. Normally I hate Fridays, but with a party to occupy the second half of the day, I can tolerate it…just this once.
I wanted to make something awesome for my students. Not the usual cupcakes or bags of candy. I decided to do a cake with meringue ghosts. Making the ghosts was very simple and took few ingredients – room temperature egg whites, confectioners sugar, cream of tartar, and vanilla extract.
These ghosts look amazing – my only regret is not having time to make eyes. If you have the time, use chocolate chips or candy eyes – whatever you have on hand.
4 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
candy eyes (if you’d like…I didn’t have any on hand)
