Morsels of Life - Egg Clouds - Egg whites whipped to stiff peaks, formed into clouds, and baked with a yolk center.

When I saw this recipe on Simply Recipes, I knew I had to give them a try. They just looked so fun and whimsical. Not to mention - Lakitu's cloud. Maybe Lakitu's hiding some gold in its cloud?

Making these egg clouds wasn't too difficult either. Just separate the egg whites and yolks. Then beat the egg whites into stiff peaks and form into clouds. I'd never formed egg whites by hand, so I thought it'd be a messy process. But, I'm definitely glad I didn't let the potential messiness stop me since it's actually not messy at all. The egg doesn't really even stick to your hands either. Egg yolks go in the middle. (You don't have to be like me and miss, but if you do, it's still just as tasty!)

What are some of your favorite fun or whimsical foods?
