  1. Could you make an Ever After High cake?
    Lotsa Hugs from the UK.

  2. Hi, I just love your website new look! I Have been a fan of your videos for a good while and I think you get better everyday. Congratulations and wish you the best.

    P.S.: I live in the UK, I wish you would hold competitions available to us kids on this side of the pond. Much love to you and your team.

  3. Though I assume it would not be recommended, can I use a hand mixer to make my meringue?

    • You can, it would take longer though

  4. I made the lime ones today. It was surprisingly easy! After baking I’ve decided they could use more lime flavor, but they are yummy!

    I didn’t have baking paper, so I used foil instead. The bottoms ended up brown (as predicted), but they were really hard to get off. I was afraid to grease the bottom. I wouldn’t recommend foil.

    • grease the foil with shortening or a little oil or some butter
      they worked for me

  5. Do you think it’d be possible to make orange flavoured meringues?? If so, what measurements should I use??

    • The same as the lime i think should work

    • Yes definitely Amy. As mentioned in other comments below. You will need to use fresh juice and reduce it down to 1-2 tablespoons and add about a tablespoon to your meringue mix. You will have to experiment with quantities to obtain the level of flavour that you like as it will depend on how flavoursome the fruit is to begin with and how much juice it produces. Ann started with one lime and 1 tablespoon of the reduced juice gave a good flavour. She also tried 2 tablespoons worth but it was too intense a flavour. Perhaps try using the juice of one large flavoursome orange or 2 smaller ones, as a starting point.

  6. will they stay fresh in the jars?

    • Yes, just make sure they are airtight

  7. i’ve made passion fuit and chocolate kisses they were goooooood thank you ann for this recipe

    • It’s our pleasure manal. We love them too!

  8. I love how to cook that! I subscribe to your channel so I watched all of your videos and I hope you choose me to met and greet bye!!!

  9. Can I use regular sugar instead of caster sugar?

    • Hi MB,
      You really need fine sugar for this recipe. We recommend using caster sugar or if you have a really good blender you could try putting normal sugar through it. The average blender won’t really do a good enough job.

    • I used normal sugar and they came out fine for me

  10. if u are making more than one flavor put the first merangue batch in the fridge while makig the next flavor becosue if you leave them out the get runny

  11. Do you have to use dark choklate?

    • Hi Bella, You could use milk choclate but it won’t have the same ‘chocolatey’ flavour.

  12. Hi Ann I was wondering what time winners will be posted

    • Hi Ariel, Winners names have been posted on this page.

  13. I’m thinking of making the raspberry or the lime ones for my mom, what piping tip did you use to pipe the meringue ‘batter’ onto the baking sheets?

    • I mean the Wilton number. Also, is it an open or closed star tip?

    • Hi Linda, Ann used 824 Ateco open tip.

  14. Is it possible to double the recipe? Will the results be the same? 🙂

    • Hi Jo,
      You can double the recipe but make sure your mixer bowl can hold that quantity once whipped!

  15. Is powdered sugar the same as caster sugar? I don’t know if I can substitute it , which brings me to another question, What brand of castor sugar do you use? I bought a bag of powdered sugar and it tastes like the plastic bag it came in, it just has a plastic taste to it.

    • Hi Leslie, powdered sugar is like icing sugar it is very fine. Caster sugar is also called superfine sugar. It looks like normal white sugar but about half the crystal size.

  16. I’m a really big fan of how to cook that

  17. Can the raspberry way be used for peaches/nectarines because I love peaches and I dont have any raspberry at home

    • Hi Cola, I don’t see why not, others in the comment here have made them with mango

  18. The meringue would still be delicious if it’s just plain, right? ^^

    • Hi Beeper01, yes, or you can add vanilla

  19. I made the raspberry kisses after Ann said they were the best! And they were, thanks for the great recipe Ann!

    • Glad you loved them too Kristy 😀

  20. What is the golden ticket question? I cannot see it

    • Hi Rose, just click off the box and you’ll see it comes up again, what is the best place to eat dessert in LA/Sydney and why?
