Stage one: Make up the meringue mixture as per MY pavlova recipe ( so – 4 egg white – whipped, plus 8 oz of sieved icing sugar – click link for full details – it is an easy and reliable recipe – this would make you two dozen mini-mini-pavlovas and two dozen snowmen)
Stage three: Pipe bodies: Two good squeezes to give a bit of shape. ON a different tray – Pipe heads – one squeeze
Stage four: Cook – 140 oC or 120 oC fan oven best for these very tiny items. About half an hour. Check, should have firm base if picked up. turn oven off and allow to cool in oven. Remove (you can store in an air-tight box until you are ready to use them)
Stage six: divide into 5 portions. Leave one white – colour the others blue, red, black and orange (deep yellow)
Stage seven: Make up 4 small greaseproof icing bags. Follow link (or look under Recipes >> Cakes, buns and icing – top-bar drop-down) for instructions.
Stage twelve: Using the back of a teaspoon add a little blob of white icing to the base of the head … and stick the head on the body of each snowman.
Stage thirteen: If you have enough icing left give the snowmen a contrasting bobble hat.
