I got my gelatin softening then continued on with phase 2. One cup of light corn syrup. Uh oh. Do I have enough? Please please please...a tipped up, drained out corn syrup bottle later, and I'm left with 3/4 of a cup. Crap. Do you know how much I love Google? It's saved my life time and time again. I honestly don't know what I was doing before Google. Probably just abandoning the project altogether for a quick (angry) drive to the store.
I thought I'd make some mini marshmallows with one of my larger star piping tips

Mini marshmallows are fun and all, but cutting them ends up being a bit time consuming. I like to use kitchen scissors, so that part's not so bad. It's when they stick together on the cut ends that sucks. I ended up individually dusting each marshmallow end with icing sugar (that's why some are more like mini marshmallow sticks. I started to get a little impatient).
Oh. I almost forgot. My tub of marshmallow fluff. The idea was that maybe if it wasn't exposed to the air, it wouldn't solidify. Wanna know how that turned out?
I now have one plastic tub shaped marshmallow.
microwaving for a mere 30 seconds solves that problem, but I don't know how long it'll last. Maybe I can wrap it with something to insulate it? Maybe I'm going to buy some fluff instead? Maybe I should have Googled this idea in the first place? Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!
Oh well. I guess we'll be left with the impossible task of eating all these marshmallows. I wonder what we should do with them...
