Step 1: Ingredients

You're gonna need a 16 oz bag of mini marshmallows, 2 tblspsn of water, and a 2 lb bag of powdered sugar.

    this recipe was very good and it tasted amazing

    really good instructable

    I've been on a baking craze lately, I can't wait to try this out :)

    maybe if you cut the large marshmallows up into smaller pieces...

    This recipe is AWESOME! I am a dude with no previous baking experience at all and I used this recipe to make my first cake. It turned out fantastic.



    I've made a couple cakes using this recipe since making my heart cake. Thanks again SOO much for this recipe... it's opened up a whole new artistic outlet for me.

    Looks great, albeit it is a bit on the sweet side for me.  Gotta watch my weight...I wonder if....nah Stevia wouldn't work in place of even some of the sugar.....

    You could sub cornstarch for the sugar.  Results may vary.

    Hmm, I might just try that then.....with the Stevia, one only needs such a tiny little scoop of it to = a tablespoon of sweetness.  

    This is great. Plus i love your retro video, so cute!
