    Fit large decorating bag with 1/4-inch star tip. With small brush, paint 3 to 4 evenly spaced stripes of food color on inside of decorating bag, from tip to upper edge. Carefully spoon meringue into bag. Pipe 2 1/2-inch candy canes onto paper-lined cookie sheets.

Expert Tips

Egg whites beat much better if they're at room temperature. It's safe to allow your egg whites to stand on your counter for about 30 minutes. To warm them more quickly, place whites in a small metal bowl and place the bowl in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes.

Stiff peaks of meringue should stand straight and tall.
