- 2 Egg Whites

Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Put the egg whites in a large mixing bowl and add half a teaspoon of lemon juice.
With an electric whisk, whisk the egg whites on a low setting until the egg whites begin to foam and look frothy.
Whisk the egg white mixture on a high speed, adding a tablespoon of sugar at a time until finished. Keeping whisking until stiff peaks are formed.
Put the meringue mixture in a piping bag and pipe a circle, in a continuous circular motion fill in the circle. Then pipe another layer on top of the outer circle. See the video for a visual guide on how to do this. Bake in the oven for 1 hour and 45 minutes or until cooked.
