    Run a skewer dipped into food colouring down the sides of a piping bag fitted with a 1cm plain nozzle to form 6 stripes. Spoon half the meringue mixture into piping bag. Pipe mixture (about 4cm in diameter), 2cm apart, onto remaining prepared tray. Repeat with more food colouring, reapplying stripes in piping bag, and remaining mixture.
