Recipe: Emoji Cocoa Meringue Recipe

21 Jun

Keeping with all things Emoji, we decided to take a stab at making homemade cocoa meringue Emoji cookies for our emoji birthday party.  These were a HUGE hit!  Kids and teens love these cookies (yes … they DO taste good).  They are a major conversation piece and a fun addition to Emoji cupcakes.  Our next blog post will be on how to decorate Emoji cupcakes for an Emoji birthday party.

Emoji Cocoa Meringue Recipe

Ingredients:
3 egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
3/4 cup granulated, superfine sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons unsweetened Dutch process cocoa, sifted
Brown food coloring

Directions:
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. In a large bowl with an electric mixer beat the egg whites until frothy. Add the cream of tartar and granulated sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat until the egg whites are stiff and shiny and the sugar granules cannot be felt in the whites. Beat in the vanilla, reduce speed to low and add cocoa and brown food coloring until combined. With a spatula put the egg white mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe 2-inch meringue “kisses” on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, at least 2 inches apart. Bake in the middle of oven for 2 hours. Turn off oven and leave the meringues in it for at least 2 more hours or until meringues are completely dry.

Sophisticated Outdoor Entertaining with Disposable Placemats

11 Jun

20160608-placematsWith summer here now, we love it when we can enjoy our backyard.  Between the flowers in the garden, some fun music and great food, a relaxing time can be had by all.  Just a little BBQ, salad and some iced drinks or wine, and the day is complete.

To make things picture perfect and for easy entertaining, this summer try some disposable heavy weight paper or durable laminated placemats!  There are so many patterns and styles and they are so pretty.

Our wide range of designs ensures you can find the right placemat for every occasion. From lemons and flowers to confetti and hearts, you’ll find perfect designs for general entertaining, birthday celebrations, kids parties and more.

You’ll get a ton of compliments and they work so much nicer than a table cloth, especially on table with an umbrella stand in the middle. And with a personal imprint or monogram, they will bring your entertaining to the next level. They add the finishing touch to any special event and make clean-up a breeze!

To add a few more easy entertaining elements, consider a great set of personalized plastic plates, custom cocktail napkins, or  disposable cups.   Also, our Tervis Tumblers are shatterproof and great for outdoor entertaining.

Enjoy the summer weather and make your entertaining easy and stylish this season!

Best wishes,

Renee
