A while back, I saw some baby seal mochi videos floating around Facebook, and I thought, WOW those little marshmallow figures are so cute! But, of course, they were at a store in not-Kansas (actually, it was somewhere in Asia, pretty sure), so I had to give up on the idea.

BUT, what if I recreated it myself? I started to think about baby seal mochis, and then I started thinking…. Okay, what else is white, squishy, and easier to make than mochi? I was feeling kind of lazy at the time, so I really didn’t want to bother handling mochi.

The answer is pipeable marshmallow. Baby marshmallow seals with piping marshmallow this is so much fun! I will say that mochi tastes better than piping marshmallow. However, this is easy enough that you might actually make it, so I think there’s just a trade-off here.

Piping Marshmallow

Piping marshmallow is really easy to make, and I put a link to the recipe I used in the recipe comments section, so see below!

Remember, when piping, a steady hand is key! Don’t move too fast, and make sure to move at a steady pace. If you stop and go, you will get ripples, and it won’t be smooth.

I like to say, have a firm solid grip, but don’t squeeze too hard. You might mess up the first few (I did), but there is a lot of marshmallow, so there’s definitely room for error!

The other key is to get the black sesame positioned correctly. If you watch my video below, you can see my shaky hand desperately hoping to get it right! A couple of tips… Be aware of the direction the sesame seed is facing on your finger, so you know exactly what angle it will be at when you stick it on the marshmallow, and slightly wet your fingertip with some water, so the seed will stick to your finger easier.

By the way, this is the third time I’ve used black sesame seeds for eyes. I also used them for my hedgehog cookies and santa cupcakes! They are so perfect for eyes!

Watch the video below to see how I made these baby seal marshmallows! Here are some of my favorite videos of  marshmallow animals.
