    Cook syrup on high heat without mixing until a reading of 240 °F is reached.

    Continue whisking slowly, drizzle syrup slowly over egg whites, whisk briskly until a light, glossy meringue is obtained.

    Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  7. 7

    Using a spatula, transfer meringue into a pastry bag, fashion little mushroom caps on one sheet and mushroom feet on the other.
