Move over cupcakes, marshmallows are the new sweet treat to make yourself, or to buy at artisan bakeries like Cake Affection. The owners of Cake Affection and their daughters gave Great Day Tampa Bay a lesson in making the soft, fluffy marshmallows and decorated them spooktacularly for Halloween.

There are 7 steps to making marshmallows:

1. COOK: Cooking sugar water.

2. WHIP: Whipping air into gelatin and sugar water.

3. SET: Laying out marshmallow in greased pan to set.

4. CUT: Cutting marshmallows into individual pieces.

5-7 Dip, Torch, and Eat.
