Easter Holiday is comming up soon which is usualy associated with the yellow color, among other things ..... the color I like the least of them all. Do not know why, but I've never liked it. I have no clothes in that color, no decoration in the house and it would be a disaster if any yellow flower would take root in my garden ..... It's good weird sometimes ..... Anyway, for the sake of Easter spirit, I did bake something in that color anyway .... and the choice fell on some half yellow Easter marshmallows. Enjoy!

You will need to double up the ingredients below, if you want to make two batches as I have made here ; one white and one yellow.

4 1/ 2 teaspoons gelatin powder
1.3 cup cold water
2 cups sugar
130-140 ml fluid glucose
0.7 cups extra water,
2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
Here's how: Mix gelatin powder with 1.3 ml cold water with a spoon and leave it aside for a while, have it in a bowl that can withstand the heat in the microwave later. In a saucepan , mix 2 dl sugar with half of the glucose (about 70 ml) and additional water ( 0.7 ml ) . Heat over medium heat until it reaches 120 degrees. Take the gelatin mixture and heat it in the microwave for 30 seconds. In a separate bowl , pour over the remaining glucose (about 70 ml ) and add the warm gelatin as you 've just warmed in the microwave . Beat on low speed for a few minutes . When sugar on the stove reaches 120 degrees , pour it carefully over the gelatin and glucose paste, while still beating on low speed. Increase to medium speed and beat for 5 more minutes. After 5 minutes , increase speed to high and add the vanilla extract . Beat for 5 minutes and you're done . Pour the marshmallow fluff into a greased mold of about 25x35cm . Do it quick, because it has the ability to solidify very quickly. Let it rest now and start from scratch to make one more batch. This time , put a few drops of yellow food coloring ( or any other color for that matter) along with the vanilla extract at the end. Pour over the yellow marshmallow fluff on the white and sprinkle with powdering sugar. Let rest for 10 minutes and then turn it over on a baking sheet , divide the desired size and roll all bits on powdered sugar . Good Luck!
