Halloween – Ghastly Ghost Party!

Processed with VSCOcam with s3 preset

Our Halloween Ghost party was a huge success and our ghost models were well behaved, for the most part anyways.  We used a traditional Halloween color palette of black, orange, lime green and purple, while adding some fun patterns, like polka dots and stripes.

Ingredients

3 egg whites

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract

Directions

Chill your metal stand mixer bowl (a regular mixing bowl will also works) in the fridge for 30 minutes.  Chilled bowls work better for whipping egg whites. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Add egg whites and cream of tartar to your chilled bowl and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes, until egg whites are frothy.

Gradually add sugar to egg whites and mix on high speed for approximately 8 minutes, until stiff peaks form.

Add mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large plain round tip (the Ateco 808 is my favorite) and pipe ghosts onto a silicon baking sheet or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in oven at 200 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until meringues are dry.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before adding your ghost eyes.

Halloween 2I made these cute cupcake toppers, which were the perfect addition to the ghost meringues.  You can find your own Ghastly Ghost toppers in the tweedledeeaz Etsy Shop.
