Cocoa Meringue Mushrooms

For a crop of "mushrooms" in realistic hues, we tinted some of the meringue with varying amounts of cocoa. Use these to create our Frosted Fruitcake or our Meringue Mushrooms Wedding Cake.

    I made these for a party last weekend and they were a hit! Although they take time to make, it's certainly worthwhile when you see your guests' reactions. I made two adjustments to the recipe: 1) instead of dividing the meringue, I folded 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder into the entire batch, and 2) instead of making a small hole in the caps, I cut the top off of each stem. This provided a much better fit, and removed the possibility of chipping off those precious gills!
