Pink Lip Marshmallows for Valentine's Day

This was my first attempt at making marshmallows. I've seen such beautiful ones on other bloggers sites but hesitated because most warned they were quite a mess to make.

I actually didn't have such a mess which is a surprise because I can be very Lucy-ish in the kitchen.

I couldn't decide what flavor to make them so I left them plain. However I had to do something to give them some pizzaz so I colored them pink and used a lip shaped cookie cutter. 

Pink puffy, Angelina Jolie lip marshmallows. Yeah, that's what I was striving for.

Ok. This attempt at lip liner and "frosted" lipstick was a little misguided, well more of a beauty disaster, really, but I give myself an "E" for effort.

They were pretty enough plain.

I followed THIS recipe from Piece of Cake's wonderful baking blog. She made wonderful bubblegum flavor marshmallows. I followed her directions exactly but just left out the flavor.



  1. a perfectly original Valentine's Day treat!

  2. Wow, this is a neat idea for Valentine's Day. It sounds delicious and fun. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your marshmallows up.

  3. Love the *Angelina* puffy marshmallow lips, such a cute treat for Valentine's day.

  4. These lips sure are Jolie!! Sorry, couldn't resist, Lohr. They look incredible. Glad to hear they weren't messy in the end. Loving the sparkly lip gloss!

  5. Sorry, Lora, I wrote that far too quickly. Repeat after me: Lora, Lora, Lora, Jolie, Jolie, Jolie...
