  1. How do I make powdered sugar

    • Hi Alata, powdered sugar is icing sugar. It is sugar that is refined down to a powder. You usually get it at the supermarket.

  2. I made blue berry flavoured ones. I made a tray using blue food colouring and a tray without. They taste so good. Thanks

  3. Can I make cinnamon flavour and how much do I use?

    • Hi Valentina, You would have to do this to taste as Cinnamon can be pretty potent as a smell and a flavour, which some people love and others don’t. Maybe start with a quarter of a teaspoon and then see how they turn out.

  4. How long do I bake it in a gas oven and at what temperature?

    • Hi Valentina, Aim for the same temperature and time as a normal oven.

  5. Please, could you bake a Hogwarts-landscape? That would be sooo awesome!
    Thank you!

  6. Hi Ann! How many days can I keep them in airtight container? (maximum)
    Thank you! I love your videos!

    • Hi Ann, they will usually keep for a couple of weeks or longer.

  7. Hello! I was planning to make these for a bake sale, but I saw “caster sugar”. Would I be able to substitute it with powdered sugar instead?

    • Hi Rica, Caster sugar or superfine sugar is the best to use. You could try it with powdered sugar but the result may not be as effective.

  8. the normal sugar

  9. I tried thus and it turned out amazing.
    I love ur all ur videos so much

    • Thanks hamada.

  10. Can you make a monster high cake please

  11. Hey Ann readen I wanted to say please can you make me a Gient teenage mutant ninja turtles cake and a Gient Jive Barr

    • Thanks for the ideas Qmia!

  12. What could we use instead of icing or powdered sugar??? plz i REALLY want to try this recipe

  13. What is the difference between icing sugar and caster sugar? Why need to use both?plz can u say?

  14. How would you make vanilla flavored meringues

    • Hi Karla, you would replace the fruit juice with a small amount of vanilla extract.

    • Hi Karla, Just use a little bit of vanilla paste or a sml amount of essence instead of the reduced juice.

  15. I’ve tried to make them and there really good

  16. Hey Ann! I was wondering how these would hold up to being in direct contact with buttercream? I thought about using them as cupcake decorations, but I fear that the moist buttercream would cause them to become chewy/lose their crunch! Any advice?

    • Hi Kristi, You are right, moisture will impact meringues. If you pop them on just before serving it will minimize the impact.

  17. Hello Ann. I am subscribed to you channel and i think you a a genius when it comes to baking! I was just wondering… can you make one of these batches and split it into four and add the flavors in like that instead of making four batches which is a bit time consuming but you obviously have to put less of the juice in I would really appreciate it if you could help. Thank you!

    • Well Huda, you could but they do get eaten so quickly I would suggest making enough meringue mixture to make the 4 batches and flavouring each one as you wish. Otherwise it is a lot of effort for a very small quantity.

  18. Hi, do I NEED to use gel food colouring or can I use liquid food colouring. Thanks!! Keep up the great work!!!! 😉

    • Hi Jacqui, Gel colours will give stronger colour and are more stable in the mix. You can use liquid colours, but only use small amounts.

  19. Do I need to make 2 whites recipe for each flavour or divide one recipe in four plz explain

    • Hi Farah, The recipe will make one quantity of mix of one flavour.

  20. Hi can i make lemon flouvor

    • Hi Maria, Yes you can. Use the lime recipe as your example and replace the lime juice with lemon juice.

      • Hi Ann do I add cream of tar tar?

        • Hi Jana, There is no need to with this recipe.
