*Reviewed for Aussie Forum Recipe Tag * My daughters loved these. An easy meringue recipe and they really did look very pretty. My girls chose pink and purple- but the pink was an 'all natural' food colour and didn't turn out very bright. The purple was very dark and they looked fantastic. Photos being posted
