Next place the mixture into a piping bag with a star tip at the end and pipe little Christmas trees onto  baking sheet.

If you are using candy canes, place them in a bag and brake them into little pieces. Sprinkle the candy canes on the meringues and bake them at    170º F for 2 hours. Check them often so that they don’t brown on top because every oven is different!
