After going for a walk in some fluffy white stuff on Friday, I came inside and took photos of something else that's white and fluffy
These are homemade marshmallows
They're really tasty (even if I do say so myself) and quite easy to make! I saw them being made on TV and looked up an english version of the recipe (original used corn syrup and I don't think I can get that here?).
As I keep saying, I've been trying to improve my food photography so I went out and got two nice looking plates to use for photos. (I say 'nice looking', the other one is plain white! Lol!) I set up a little area beside my kitchen window for some nice soft lighting and cut out a swirly shape from paper to make a pretty pattern in the icing sugar for interest.
I took lots of photos, ranging from three marshmallows on a clean plate to this little group with the dusted sugar. This is my favourite out of the lot.
V2 shows the little 'studio' area I set up for the photos.
(If anyone is interested in the recipe, I used Alton Brown's version on the Food Network website - although I didn't have quite enough golden syrup, they turned out really nicely
I would recommend using silicone tins though! Or if you can't, dust your pan really well especially at the edges! It's a bit sticky to turn out!)
