Reviews forMeringue Bunnies
"these cooked in under 1 hour. When I took them out of the oven they were cracked. I found it difficult to pipe the faces."
"Cute but needs some flavor. Next time I make them I will add some peppermint extract like in the Mint Merengues recipe."
"Okay I don't understand what your comment has to do with the meringue bunnies recipe, but here is your answer the vineger reacts with the baking powder is order to give it the lift that is needed. Also if a resipe calls for butter milk and you don't have any you can mix one tablespoon vinegar with one cup let it set for fifteen minute and you have buttermilk."
"I have a comment why do you ask for white vinegar on some cakes and cupcakes.What does the white vinegar does.Do,I have to add vinegar to almost every thing,I know you add vinegar to meals but dessert come on."
