To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Reading this book was a joy. It's well designed, the photographs are beautiful, the instructions clear, and the recipes sound great. However, having just made the basic vanilla marshmallows, I'm disappointed. I've made marshmallows with great success before, and these just don't have the same magic. They don't taste right and the texture is a little heavier. I compared the recipes to figure out if there were any significant differences, and there are--this recipe (which provides the base for most of the others) uses much more gelatin and less sugar and corn syrup than my other recipe. I think that going forward I'll be using the other recipe (the marshmallow recipe from Sticky Chewy Messy Goey Recipes for Kids) and trying to adapt it to the various flavors from this book.
Wow , who would have thought marshmallows could be so flavoursome and an outlet for creativity, this is the book for you if you want to create some confectionary of the not so usual nature. Yum Yum Yum
