About a year ago, I watched an episode of Good Eats, where he made marshmallows. Since then, I’ve been dying to try it myself. Alas, I do not have a stand mixer. And, I probably won’t have one for a long time, as I am a cheap college student who can’t justify spending $200+ on a mixer I won’t use that often. I have been thinking of buying a hand-held electric mixer, though.
So, is it possible to make marshmallows with a hand mixer? Or meringue cookies? Chiffon cake? Has anyone tried?
