I've never had marzipan before and couldn't find it pre-made in the store. This was really easy to make and tastes good. This will go great in my Christmas Stollen. Thank you for this recipe!

These worked out great! I made them into tiny apples for our "Apples of Gold in Pictures of Silver" theme for our Ladies banquet for church. I let them dry out over night.

So easy to make - I am not a baker and certainly not a cake decorator but I put it on my Christmas cake and it tastes delicious - No I have not tasted the cake as yet but the Marzipan tastes great. Thanks Lali for this simple recipe, The texture is just right for shaping little figures for those talented ones that can make them (wish I could)
