Edible Mushroom Forest Terrarium
black sanding sugar
meringue with piping bag
white melting chocolate
green sprinkles and/or sanding sugar
For the mushrooms: Create your mushroom meringues by first making the “stems” and the “tops” separately. The mushroom stems can be created by piping strips of meringue onto a prepped baking sheet with a piping bag. The tops are simply a dollop of meringue. Prepare according to your preferred meringue recipe. (To add a spooky green touch to the top of your mushrooms, brush a bit of egg white onto the tops and sprinkle with green-colored sprinkles or sanding sugar. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes to set.) Once your stems and tops are ready, join them together by using white melting chocolate (you can melt it using the stove or a microwave).
Fill your terrarium roughly half-way with black sanding sugar. Drop in pieces of spun white sugar to add a creepy cobweb look. Place your finished mushrooms into the black sugar. Voila! That’s it! Place on your Halloween table and get ready to wow your guests.
