Cake Batter Marshmallows

As much as I love fall baking (and holiday baking for that matter), I have to say that I may equally Spring baking. I have a serious obsession with pastels. Maybe one as big as my sprinkle obsession. (just maybe!) I love dainty cakes and feminine colors so naturally, I embrace Spring baking.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. I actually used to dread it when I live in Colorado, because that’s when we would get most of snowfall. I’m not a lover of snow. I will be the first to admit it. Gasp! I know…But I really have grown to love springtime. Especially here in Texas!

In the spirit of Spring baking, I am bringing some heavenly cake batter marshmallows. They are soft and fluffy and incredibly easy to make. All you need is a candy thermometer and a mixer. You will never want to buy another bag of marshmallows after you see how easy they are to make (and how much better they taste)!

Quick note: If you are making these in the South or Midwest, try to aim for a day that is not overly humid, otherwise your marshmallows may have a little trouble setting up. Happy Spring and Happy Baking!
