Ingredients for Flamingo Cake Topper - Vegan

(makes about 10 Vegan Flamingo Cake Toppers)
  • 125 g sugar
  • 125 ml aquafaba - I've drained the water from two chickpea cans and let the water sit in the fridge overnight.  Whatever was left over, I froze.
  • 1 pack of vanilla sugar
  • Wooden skewers
  • Gel food color in pink and yellow.
  • Gold sugar pearls for the eyes.

Instructions for flamingo cake toppers

  • The amounts specified above suffice for about 10 flamingo toppers.  Beat the aquafaba for about 10 minutes before adding sugar.  Make sure to use a standmixer, if possible.  Then add the sugar and beat for another 5 minutes.  Vanilla sugar as well - alternatively, some type of aroma or flavor (maybe some strawberry flavor? Yum!).
  • Color the vegan meringue with gel food color.

Using a pastry bag, pipe flamingos on parchment paper and on a wood skewer.  Then dry the flamingos in a preheated oven at 100 degrees Celcius for 75 minutes.  Then leave them in the oven for remaining 30 minutes.  For more detailed instructions, watch the video below.
