Have you ever wondered what a cloud would taste like? Most likely, the closest thing to eating a cloud is a fluffy meringue dessert. Meringues, made of beaten egg whites and a sprinkle of sugar, are about 90 percent air, whipped into a puff of sweet foam.

Meringues are a component of many classic desserts because their lightness serves as a counterpoint to denser sweets such as custards or pie. Egg white-based dishes are a fitting finale to many meals, and it can be much simpler than the traditional souffles or meringue pies.
