Prepare Piping Marshmallow, Piping Bags and Cookie Sheet

  • Make your piping marshmallow (see notes!).
    Fit two piping bags with tips, the first with the #2A piping tip, tip and the other with the #6 piping tip.
    1 piping marshmallow recipe
  • Fill the piping bags with the completed piping marshmallow, add most of it to the first bag (#2A tip) and a small amount to the second bag (#6 tip).
    This can be done by placing the bags over mason jars as shown in the video. 
    The first bag will be for the bodies so it will need more marshmallow, and will use the #2A pipping tip. The second bag will be smaller and use the #6 tip,
  • On a large baking sheet (you may need more than one), sprinkle cornstarch and powdered sugar until you have a thin layer covering the entire bottom. 
    1/2 cup cornstarch

Use Piping Marshmallow to Create The baby Seals

  • With the #2A bag, start piping a round marshmallow shape, and then pull away to make a pointed "tail".
    You want your seal to be pretty round, so pipe slow and get plenty of marshmallow out. You want the body to be about 2 inches long, and then a short tail after that. 
    #2A and #6 piping tips, two piping bags
  • After you've piped the bodies and tails, use the #6 piping tip to, pipe the muzzle (is that what it's called?), by piping a dot, and then another dot right next to it (see pictures and video...).
    TIP: if it's pointy where you pull away, you can wet your finger tip and press down to flatten it out. 
    #2A and #6 piping tips, two piping bags
  • Add two sesame seeds for eyes, and one on the muzzle for its nose.
    1 Tablespoon black sesame seeds
  • Scoop the powdered sugar/cornstarch mixture over the seals (or sift more over the top), and roll them around so they are completely covered in the powder.
    1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • Tap each seal to remove excess powder.
  • Using kitchen shears, cut little slits on each side to make the flippers. Add some more powder, so it doesn't stick back to the body.
    1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 cup cornstarch



I used Martha Stewart's recipe. I used a half batch, because it makes a lot, and because the marshmallow starts setting if you wait too long, which makes the muzzle harder to pipe.
