    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

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    bugs

    Units: US | Metric

    • 140 g marzipan
    • black food coloring
    • edible luster dust, various colours

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix black food colouring into the marzipan, this will take some time and turn everything your touch black.
    2. 2
      Cut or break marzipan into beetle sized lumps.
    3. 3
      Roll each lump into a elongated ball, about an inch long.
    4. 4
      Flatten slightly until roughly bug shape.
    5. 5
      Make groove in the bug to make it look like an egyptian scarab beetle.
    6. 6
      Dab 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.
    7. 7
      Add a second colour if you want a shimmering beetle effect.
    8. 8
      Optional; roll some marzipan into tiny sausage, which are going to be the legs.
    9. 9
      Cut the tiny sausages into 3 shorter sausages, enough to sit under the beetle and poke out each side.
    10. 10
      Layout legs, stick beetle on-top, carefully wait to harder a bit before moving.
