Find that marshmallow already beginning to set, turn on gas and melt and prod a bit more, then ladle into mould. Put mould into the 'fridge, then go and change top which is now covered in sticky pink stuff - it's worse than chewing gum.
Remove from 'fridge when it looks to be set. Slap away son's hand... "no you may NOT stick your finger in it!".... and tip out of mould. Now comes the hard bit... the marshmallow is stuck (flour notwithstanding) to the greaseproof paper. I need cornflour.... double rats; still no cornflour. Brainwave! Liberal sprinklings of custard powder on every sticky surface as it emerges, and things are beginning to take shape.
