NQN's ghastly, ghoulish Halloween party!

How adorable are these Ghost Meringues for Halloween? These are an effective and very easy Halloween party food. All you need is some egg whites, sugar and silver cachous for the eyes! They can be made ahead of time and you can serve them with cream and "bloody" strawberry sauce for an Eton Mess too.

Step 2 - Place mixture in a plain 1.5cm nozzle fitted piping bag and pipe ghosts using a swirl action onto a baking tray lined with non stick paper. With tweezers place 2 cachous in place of eyes and bake for 25 minutes. When done, turn off the oven and leave to cool with the door ajar.
