These meringue ghosts can decorate any cake this Halloween. Make a big licorice cake or a chocolate cake or your favorite and top with the meringue ghosts.
Set the oven to 100 °C (212 °F). Put parchment paper on two baking pans.
Assemble the assistent with beater bowl and balloon whisks.
Whisk the egg whites together with the vinegar on high speed until you have a foam.
Slowly add the sugar while whisking until you have a glossy meringue.
Finally add the icing sugar and whisk.
Fill a plastic bag with the meringue batter and shape the "ghosts" into the desired size on the baking pans.
Set the pans in the oven for 1-2 hours, do not open the oven.
Turn off the heat and leave the meringue in the after-heat for a few hours. It is good to open the oven and let out some moisture.
Melt the chocolate and use a stick or spoon to paint eyes and mouth.
