1/5 Photos of Marzipan Bugs
The Catt Family's Note:
Great for halloween, decorating cakes or ghoulish treats. Inspired by Lily Vanilli's Zombie Ate My Cupcake! book, these are our slightly simpler version (if such a thing as making bugs out of marzipan is possible to be simpler).
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 140 g marzipan
- black food coloring
- edible luster dust, various colours
- 1Mix black food colouring into the marzipan, this will take some time and turn everything your touch black.
- 2Cut or break marzipan into beetle sized lumps.
- 3Roll each lump into a elongated ball, about an inch long.
- 4Flatten slightly until roughly bug shape.
- 5Make groove in the bug to make it look like an egyptian scarab beetle.
- 6Dab a small brush into the Edible Luster and then wipe most of it off on a kitchen tissue, then brush the wings/shell of the beetle.
- 7Add a second colour if you want a shimmering beetle effect.
- 8Optional; roll some marzipan into tiny sausage, which are going to be the legs.
- 9Cut the tiny sausages into 3 shorter sausages, enough to sit under the beetle and poke out each side.
- 10Layout legs, stick beetle on-top, carefully wait to harder a bit before moving.
