Marzipan is a sweet confection made of ground almonds and sweetener such as honey. Marzipan is incredibly versatile and can be used for all kinds of desserts. It is fantastic in traditional German/European sweets such as Mozartkugel (Mozart Balls), small imitations of fruit and vegetables, biscuits, bread, or rolled like fondant into thin sheets that decorate the outside of celebration cakes. The most famous of these cakes is the Swedish Prinsesstarta (Princess Cake) which has a layer of bright pink or green marzipan on top. I used my marzipan inside my Christmas Stollen.
This Marzipan recipe is the easiest you will ever use! It comes together quickly and can be made in advance. It is soft and pliable. If you enjoy almond you will love Marzipan!
