Cooking is not my most successful venture. However long the recipe says cooking time should be, I have to double it. I also seem to use every utensil in the entire kitchen, which is why this particular challenge has gone so long without being started.
However, I was determined to make some of Martha Stewart's candy cane marshmallows to include in my Secret Santa gift. I waited until I had the house to myself, gave myself plenty of time and had collected all the ingredients together (like they used to on Blue Peter).
And I was pleasantly surprised by the results - they looked almost the same as the picture (and they tasted fine, unlike my misadventure with sea-salt fudge...)!
