STEP 3: Pour hot sugar mixture into a stand mixer with gelatin and whip until the mixture is fluffy and bright white.
STEP 4: Add flavorings and whip to combine.
STEP 5: Transfer marshmallow fluff to a 9x13-inch baking pan lined with foil and coated with nonstick spray.
STEP 6: Sift confectioners' sugar and tapioca starch over top; let sit overnight.
STEP 7: Sift a work surface with confectioners' sugar and starch, turn marshmallows, remove foil and sift confectioners' sugar and starch over top. STEP 8: Cut marshmallow slab into 1-inch squares, toss with organic confectioners sugar and tapioca starch, and store overnight.
