2. Beat egg whites in a large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until frothy (if using a freestanding mixer, use wire whisk attachment). Add the cream of tartar.

3. Continue to beat, adding 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time until sugar is dissolved and stiff peaks form (this will take about 10 minutes). Beat in vanilla extract and food coloring (about 15 – 20 drops) at high speed until stiff and glossy.

4. Divide meringue into two pastry bags. Fit one bag with a large star decorating tip for Mickey’s head and smaller tip for Mickey’s ears. Put Mickey template underneath paper or mat for reference. Pipe the meringue in coils on a parchment paper or a silicon baking mat starting with Mickey’s head then adding ears. If you prefer to not use pastry bag and tip you can drop rounded measuring spoonful to create Mickey shape. 

5. Bake meringues for 45 minutes, until cream colored and firm. Turn oven off. Leave the meringues in the turned-off oven for an hour or until completed cooled.

6. When ready to serve, carefully peel away from the paper or silicone mat.


About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
