Multi-Colored Meringues

I love meringues. I love to eat them and I love to make them. They are so simple, require so few ingredients and can be colored or decorated in so many ways. With that crunchy outside and chewy inside, meringues are always a crowd-pleaser. Meringues are a great Passover treat because they require only egg whites, salt, sugar, and a little bit of food coloring. They’re quick to make but take a while to bake so it’s best to whip up a batch before folding laundry or cleaning your refrigerator, but I promise they’ll be worth the wait.

Tri-Color V-Day “Cupcakes”

Cook:
16 minutes

Yield:
3-layer 9"x13" cake

In this day and age, it’s hard to create a unique treat without consulting food magazines, blogs and social media sites like Pinterest. Ever since Carrie Bradshaw declared her love for Magnolia Bakery, cupcakes have been all the rage. I’ve always loved making cupcakes, as they are easy to serve, can take on little personalities of their own, and most importantly, I can try one before giving them to anyone else. (You can’t do that with an entire cake!)

For Valentine’s Day, I considered heart-shaped cupcakes or something red-velvet but while more frosting and more sprinkles make everything more delicious, for this project, I wanted to focus on simplicity. Multicolored cakes are all the rag these days, and I love anything pink so I decided to make mini three-layer cakes with fluffy buttercream frosting and a classic cherry heart lollipop to top it off. By definition, these aren’t exactly “cupcakes” but I don’t think you’ll get any complaints.
