1. Whisk the whites at room temperature until foam appears (1.5 minutes), continue whisking, add vanilla sugar, then regular sugar gradually a tablespoon at a time. Beat until a dense, stable foam and sugar dissolves for 10-15 minutes (it may not dissolve even after 20 minutes of beating, nothing bad will happen, just the meringue will float). At the end, add lemon juice to make the mass whiter, and beat for another minute.

2. Transfer the whipped whites to a pastry bag (if not, you can use a spoon). Make droplets on the parchment, insert halves of bamboo sticks (you can use whole ones), and drop the meringue into them.
