Holiday Gift Guide
Marshmallow.

Why did I decide to make marshmallows? I made castella for Kayoko's mom, thanking her hospitality when we visited Cupertino. It uses about 15 eggs, 7 whole eggs and 7 yolks. I had 7 egg whites left. That's why. I could have made macarons, but I am kind of taking a break from it.

I also get a lot of cooking/baking ideas from looking through Tastespotting. Their pictures always make me want to create it for myself. And there was marshmallow picture that looked pretty good.

It's actually quite simple, corn syrup, sugar, water, gelatin, vanilla and egg whites (to make it fluffier). If you have a stand mixer, it is easy as hell to make.

I dropped food coloring, dragged with tooth pick, and chilled it. It was like painting on a canvas. Since I only had red and green food coloring, it looks like Christmas, but oh well.


It looks nice, very fluffy, and very booby. All men are totally obsessed with boobs, and this marshmallow had the consistency of them. Very jiggly.

Too bad, it tasted like fluffy sugar, and basically dumped the whole thing.

  • Who makes marshmallows in the middle of summer? I think the recipe I used [from Martha, of course] didn’t have egg whites…

    Also, you sound like Steve Carell in The 40 Year Old Virgin describing breasts…“like sand bags.”

    i like the jackson pollack psychedelic tie-dye look you’re going with these marshmallows.

  • I think marshmallows taste like fluffy sugar anyways. It reminds me of fireworks.
