It’s Deanna from Mirabelle Creations and I’m so excited to share this fun spring dessert – Strawberry Meringue Roses.  I’m a lifelong Kentucky gal, so one of my favorite days of the year is the first Saturday in May – Derby Day!  The Kentucky Derby is also known as the Run for the Roses.  

This easy, delicious, Strawberry Meringue Roses recipe is the perfect dessert for a Run for the Roses celebration. 

So, whether you are hosting full blown Derby bash (download free Derby Party Printable Supplies) or will be watching the race with family at home, you can whip up a batch of these little meringue roses to nosh on while rooting for your favorite horse. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have Derby plans.  These little meringues would be great for any sweet spring tea or brunch too.  They would look beautiful served for a Mother’s Day brunch, as well!   

Strawberry Meringue Roses recipe (adapted from Food Network)

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 6 tablespoons seedless strawberry preserves 1/2 teaspoon strawberry extract
  • 2 drops red or pink food coloring (optional)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 215 degrees.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.  (Do not skip this or your meringues will stick to baking sheet).

Beat egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, preserves, extract and food coloring until frothy.  With mixer running, slowly add powdered sugar and beat until stiff peaks have formed. 

Fit pastry bag with a large star tip.  Fill pastry bag with mixture.   Pipe round roses on lined baking sheet by piping 2 inch spirals starting from the center and rotating outwards. 

Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Turn off oven and open door.  Let meringues dry in the oven for about 10-12 minutes.   Remove from oven and let cool.

Hey everyone, it’s Bridget, again. I’m back to share this fabulous Kentucky Derby styled shoot that was recently submitted to us from Deanna at Mirabelle Creations. 

On May 5th, Kentuckians will be celebrating the 138th annual Kentucky Derby. Being a Cincinnati girl, I grew up steeped in the “Run for the Roses” tradition, a Kentucky Derby fundraisting event. So I was thrilled to see that Deanna captured this timeless tradition with modern flair in her FREE printables! The sweet color palette of red, white, and blue and the rose-centered design are a perfect complement.

And I’m dying to try out some of her delicious recipes. She made Kentucky Bourbon Ball Pops and took another traditional Kentucky dessert, Derby Pie – a gooey brown sugar, pecan, and dark chocolate treat – and made Kentucky Derby pie inspired cupcakes!


So grab your big hat and your mint julip, and “race” on over to Mirabelle Creations to download her FREE Kentucky Derby party printables to create this charming party for your very own! {Thanks, Deanna, for letting us share!}


As always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!
