Since Valentine's Day is actually on most calendars, I suppose I have to recognize its existence. While I'm not too keen on the premise, I do love hearts and the color pink is growing on me (not literally...last time I checked). Those things being said, I give you pink and red heart-shaped meringues.
I used the recipe that yielded such lovely Christmas meringues with three changes:
*I streaked the pastry bag with red and pink gels.
*I used only vanilla extract, though I'm thinking something like a hint of Kahlua might be delicious and appropriate.
*Instead of just making meringue blobs (or, in some cases, walnuts), I made hearts.
Pretty festive, right? Especially for someone who tries to ignore the annual flowers-and-chocolate fest known as V-Day.
|Happy Valentine's Day. I guess. :)|
