Are commercial marshmallows gluten free? I'm sure I've seen recipes that call for melting them and adding something to make a marshmallow icing.
Big W sell a brand of gluten free marshmallows. They are also halal, and thus often sold in other shops where halal products are sold or in shops in areas with alot of Muslims (if you live in or near such an area you may very easily find them) - sorry can't remember the name, but they are in a pink coloured bag.
ETA: I have found them. Beacon is the brand.http://www.glutenfreeshop.com.au/Beacon-Ma...00gm-P3171.aspx
To make frosting using marshmallows maybe try this recipe: Is dairy, egg and gluten free.http://candy.about.com/od/fondantcandyreci.../mm_fondant.htm
