    Hi there DD team, I'm taking these to a family gathering, if stored in an airtight container do you think I'll be able to prepare the meringues in advance? How long would they last? Thanks!

    I have made one large round from a different recipe at fatforweightloss.com and left it on the counter uncovered o/n. Great the next day. Trick is to keep them from getting soft so I don't cover and it was still very crisp the next day.
