One of Elias's most favoritest thing in all the world is meringue. I only make it a few times a year, because it is mostly sugar, and because he cant stop himself from eating the whole lot of them in one day! I make it at chirstmas, when I make the yule log, and what grows on the log but meringue mushrooms! I LOVE making the mushrooms. And for halloween, I make meringue ghosts. Because, the kids don't get enough sugar from the candy they collect from strangers...

1 cup (200 grams) superfine or castersugar(if you don't have superfine sugar simply take 1 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar and process it for about 30 seconds in aprocessor)
