  3. DOLLOP the egg white mixture onto the lined baking sheet into a mound with a spoon, then using the back of the spoon create a well in the center of the mound.
  4. BAKE until the egg whites are no longer wet and slightly golden, about 3 minutes.
  5. ADD the food coloring to one of the separated yolks and MIX until well combined with a toothpick.**
  6. GENTLY add the other yolk to the center of the egg whites.
  7. SLOWLY pour the black egg yolk over the cloud egg.**
