Hi Stephanie I think your problem stemmed from the amount of egg whites you used. The recipe calls for 100grams of egg whites (or 3 egg whites). Don't give up! Try it again, you'll get it!!! Happy baking!

I followed the recipe exactly like it says on the video and my egg whites/sugar/confectioner mixture ended up way to thick, i couldn't even squeeze it through a pastry bag! i followed the metric recipe, because it is supposed to be more precised. i ended up cutting the bag and scooping the mixture out to make little balls like when i bake cookies. i baked them for 10mns like the recipe says, keeping an eye on them every 3 minutes or so, they stayed shaped as balls. i am thinking i need to use 3 egg whites. the recipe says 50g of egg whites or about 3 eggs, 50g ended up being less than 2 eggs so that is what i used.
