  • STEP 1

    In a small bowl, combine granulated and icing sugar and mix well. Set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Place egg whites in bowl of electric mixer. Add cream of tartar and beat on high until soft peaks form. Add 125 mL (1/2 cup) of the sugar mixture and blend well. Continue adding 15 mL (1 Tbsp) of sugar at a time until dissolved and stiff, glossy peaks form. If light pink-colored clouds are desired, blend in a couple drops of food coloring.

  • STEP 3

    Sprinkle cornstarch and vinegar over mixture. Gently fold in being careful not to lose any volume. 

  • STEP 4

    Preheat oven to 325°F (165°C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Spoon meringue into 6 mounds, about 3 inches wide, at least 1 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 250°F(125°C) and continue baking for an additional 45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

  • STEP 5

    Whip the cream and sweeten to taste with sugar. About an hour before serving, fill each cloud with a base of whip cream topped with fresh pitted cherries. Keep refrigerated until serving.
