How to Make:

  1. Brush a baking tray with oil to grease. Line with non-stick baking paper. Place the water in a small saucepan. Sprinkle with the gelatine and set aside for 1 minute to soften.
  2. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean into the pan. Add the sugar. Place over low heat. Stir until gelatine and sugar dissolve.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Use an electric beater to beat for 10 minutes or until thick, light and fluffy. Spread over the prepared tray to form a 2cm-thick, 16cm square. Smooth the surface. Set aside for 1 hour or until set.
  4. Lightly dust a sheet of non-stick baking paper with cornflour. Turn the marshmallow onto the cornflour on the paper. Remove the top sheet of paper. Lightly dust the top of the marshmallow with cornflour. Use a 3.5cm star-shaped pastry cutter dipped in cornflour to cut 16 stars from the marshmallow.
