- Beat for 5-6 minutes until very stable and glossy meringue forms.
- Add about 1/3 of the meringue into the almond mixture and stir until mixture is smooth.
- Add in the remaining meringue and fold gently but firmly until the mixture is smooth and shiny and has a thick texture that resembles a pound cake batter. Towards the end of the folding gradually add food coloring to taste.
