3) Marshmallow & rice krispies shaped pumpkin
4) Vanilla cake
I was always told that meringue was a difficult food to make but I've read the Martha Stewart recipe and it seems easy enough.
Makes about 18
6 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups sugar
1.Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Put egg whites and sugar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer. Set bowl over a pan of simmering water; whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and mixture feels warm to the touch, about 5 minutes.
2.Return bowl to mixer, and fit mixer with the whisk attachment.Beat on high speed until very stiff peaks form, about 8 minutes.
3.Transfer meringue to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain round tip, such as a Wilton #1A. Pipe bone shapes, each 5 to 6 inches long, onto two baking sheets lined with parchment paper (as shown below). Bake until crisp throughout, about 1 hour. Let cool completely on a wire rack.
Edit/Update on the meringue bones
As it turns out I couldn't make them. I was able to do the meringue, but I could not for the love of Halloween shape the meringue into bones. As hard as I tried. I would say this recipe is for advanced cooks.
