  1. Hi there!
    They look so cute and colourful….am very keen to try them for my gal’s school function.
    Please, may i know how long they can keep? will they become sticky or gooey from humidity?
    What’s the best way to store them?

    Thank You So Much!

    1. Unfortunately our high humidity is not good for meringues. You can try to store them in air tight containers but they should be made as close to your function as possible.
