They are a marshmallow made with agar instead of gelatine – which means I can make them for a vegetarian friend 🙂
The recipe is a bit fiddly and my piping bag was too small and I made a bit of a mess. Plus I wasn’t sure how much working time before it set so I could pipe them – turns out there was plenty of time – its sets over several hours.
Today was camera day – carefully transferred over to a clean sheet of baking paper, onto the tray and into the studio.
I think I positioned them a bit too far apart for the size, the camera exaggerates distance, so I will remember that for next time.
These were made with tinned cherries but came out much paler than I expected.
This was a new recipe for me and made a few mistakes, lots of learning and ideas of ways to fix it for next time. Despite that I still got nice swirls that were set and able to be shot and moved about without too much damage.
Plus they get to be eaten once finished!
