What to Do

In a bowl of an electric mixer add 3/4 cup cold water and gelatin. allow to sit until the gelatin is all dissolved. (I place the bowl on the mixer with the whisk attachment and allow it to set-up while I make the sugar syrup)

Meanwhile, In a saucepan add granulated sugar, corn syrup, and water. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil, without stirring, until mixture registers 238 degrees (Soft Ball Stage) on a candy thermometer.

Turn the mixer on a steady stir setting and pour the sugar mixture-slowly, down the side of the mixing bowl an allow it to gradually whip into the gelatin. Increase the speed of the mixer and whip until Marshmallow forms and increases in volume and is stiff and cooled.

Immediately pipe, or spread the mixture atop the tart.
