In my family, my grandmother made the best divinity candy, which originally inspired this ornament. Since a lot of divinity candy is formless, dolloped right from a spoon on to some waxed paper, I opted for the making this ornament look like fancy divinity piped from a bag. Since piped divinity looks just like the more universally relatable look of meringues, I figured I’d simplify things and refer to this one as a meringue ornament.
