Make the meringue the same day you are going to use it.
Electric Hand Mixer or Stand Mixer
- ¼ cup Cold Water
- ⅓ cup Granulated Sugar
- ⅛ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 tablespoon Meringue Powder (this is the full container that we sent to the campers)
In a large bowl, combine meringue powder, water, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of the sugar.
Whip at high speed for 5 minutes.
Gradually add the rest of the sugar and whip at high speed for 5 more minutes until the meringue is stiff and dry.
Put the Meringue that you made in a piping bag without a tip, and close the bag. Do not refrigerate the meringue.
