How to make Squishy Shape Treats | My take on Cloud Bread Tik Tok Trend

Who has tried the TikTok trend Cloud Bread recipe? I have and failed a few times 😂 succeeded a few more. On one of my experiments to create some cloud sandwiches I created some fun, squishy shape dessert treats that is perfect for parties, grazing tables, hampers and event food.

I have no idea what to call these, from the outside they look like a meringue but on the inside, they are like a squishy bouncy super light cake texture, very much like the cloud bread or those kids squishy toys that are popular at the moment. 

Maybe I will call them Squishy Cloud Shape Treats!
This is my take on the Tik Tok Cloud Bread Trend.

HOW TO MAKE BOUNCY CLOUD DESERT SHAPE PARTY TREATS

These fun treats are not too difficult to make but you do need a little patience when mixing it all together. These can be served singly or into a sandwich style, just make 2 of each shape. 
I have made a few different shapes to see how they would work for different holiday seasons throughout the year and kid's parties or events but you could really use these for any occasion. 

I was amazed at how well they keep the shape and cook with this simple recipe of 4 ingredients. The small number 3 that I tested above stayed perfectly shaped which is the one I thought would not.

DIY Details
  • Under $10
  • Basic Cooking Skills
This is a Gluten Free & Dairy Free Recipe. 

DIY RECIPE Ingredients
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 3 Tablespoons of Cornflour
  • 3 Tablespoons of White Sugar
  • Vanilla Essence or flavour of your choice
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Food Colouring (not a necessity)
If you do not use food colouring, the end result inside is a bright white colour. Above will make 5 large shapes or 10 small. Double or Triple the amounts for a bigger batch.
Step by Step Tutorial
STEP 1
  • Separate your yoke from your egg whites. I cheated and used pre-done eggwhites in a cartoon. Shortcuts are my thing 😏
  • Mix your egg white with a whisk or beater. I used a beater because I couldn't find my whisk which you should never do but it worked fine, so electric beat it, it will save your arm from falling off by hand whisking. 
  • Mix until the egg white is bubbly, white and airy
STEP 2
  • Slowly add the sugar into the egg white while you are mixing
STEP 3
  • Add in your flavour. I used approx 6 drops to take away any egg flavour. Do not add only 2 drops unless you like eating eggs a lot. More flavour the better
  • If you would like to add colour, this is the time to add a drop of food colouring
STEP 4
  • Slowly add in your cornflour
STEP 5
  • Mix until it becomes shiny and thick like shaving cream consistency but a little bit stiffer. It should stay firm and not drip
STEP 6
  • Place non-stick baking paper on a cooking tray
  • Put your cookie cutter shapes on your tray
STEP 7
  • With a teaspoon, scoop your mixture into your shapes making sure you push to the edges so there is no gap down the sides
  • Smooth out the top with the back of your spoon or ad texture for different looks. 
These will cook exactly how they are when they go in the oven, they do not rise or sink.
STEP 8
  • Leave the mix in your cooking cutter shape for a minute and slowly lift off the baking tray
STEP 9
  • Bake for Approx 22-30 mins in a 220 degrees celsius preheated oven
I have a fan-forced oven, if you have a different oven you may need to experiment with how long to stay in the oven for and the temperature. 

My oven is also temperamental which is why I almost did not post these in case it would not work for others. I tested a batch in my Mothers oven and I had to take them out 5 mins early, so make sure you keep an eye on them so they do not burn.

The shapes should turn light brown and be sponge-like to touch. If you cook too long they will go hard.
STEP 10
  • Let your shapes cool
  • Eat fresh so they stay bouncy and cloud-like. If you leave them a day, they will have turned hard inside.
HOW TO SERVE
Make some puffy sandwiches by adding a filling.
You could use a chocolate spread, nut spread or frosting for a sweet treat. I used some sweet green frosting with these Christmas Tree Treats. They turned out so cute
HOW TO SERVE
Add cupcake sprinkles. 
Place on top before you place them in the oven. These are super sweet and perfect for a kids party. Make in bite-sized shapes matching the parties theme for full impact.
RESULTS
Display on a dessert plate for parties or a lined up on a wooden grazing board for a great contrast 

When you first get them out of the oven, they smell very eggy, but after a little while, the smell disappears.

If the shapes dry sticky, you have not left them in the oven long enough. I found once I had a slight brown finish over top they were ready to be taken out of the oven.

There is really no flavour too these,  just a hint of Vanilla and egg. I think these are more of a Novelty desert food for kids or teens because of the squishy texture.

EXPERIMENT COOKING RESULTS
I am going to share with you the results of a different amount of each ingredient and how they looked. Just in case anyone needs some super-light puffy shapes. I thought these were a fail at the time but realised they are very adorable and would suit some events.

Instead of the above recipe quantities, this one is
  • 4 Egg Whites 
  • 1 Tablespoon of Cornflour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon of Sugar
  • 6 drops of Vanilla Essence
Mix and Cook as above recipe
