Marshmallows seems like a good alternative but I never have them on hand.

Scott only needs to have marshmallows on hand once every few years.

I had that happen when I put the terra cotta directly on the sugar, so after that, when I put that in, I put one of those glass disks I use for weighting down pickling veggies on the sugar, before adding the terra cotta moistener. I do that without thinking about it now, I have done it so many times, so I didn't even think about it here!
