    Place egg whites and caster sugar in a bowl and mix with electric mix until stiff, you should be able to turn the bowl upside down without it falling out.  Add orange gel food colouring and continue to mix for a further 30 seconds. In some of my other macaroon recipes they all call for cream of tarter when whipping the egg whites. Should i do the same in this recipe or not?
