  • Slowly add the sugar, gradually mixing for about 10 seconds on medium in between each addition.
  • Once all the sugar has been added, mix on high for 2-5 minutes until stiff peaks form.
  • Since were making flags, we’ll need to separate the meringue to get the red, white and blue colors.
  • Divide the meringue batter into three equal portions. Add about a tablespoon of blue gel coloring to one portion and a tablespoon of red gel coloring to another portion and mix well. Leave the remaining portion white.
  • Prepare three piping bags with tip 2A. Fill bags separately with blue, red and white meringue batter.
