  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 200ºF. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
  • 3
    Place egg whites in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a wire whip, or in a large bowl if you are using a electric hand mixer. Add almond extract and cream of tartar. Whip at high speed until the mixture looks like snow with stiff peaks. Gradually add sugar while mixing at medium speed. Switch to high speed until the mixture begins to shine.
  • 4
    Assemble the decorating bag with tip and fill with the meringue. Pipe a ball for the snowman head and pipe the body by piping meringue back and forth on the tray. Fill baking trays with snowmen heads and bodies (they’re separate).
  • 5
    Bake snowmen for 2 hours or until meringue sets but is not yet browned. Turn off oven, open the door slightly and let snowmen sit in the warm oven for 2 more hours. When cool, assemble the snowmen.
  • 6
    Pipe some frosting on the underside of a snowman head and rest on a snowman body. With the decorating icings, pipe the eyes and mouth in black, the carrot nose in orange, the buttons in any desired color and the stick arms in brown.
