Things To Do With… Leftover Marzipan

Made by mixing sugar and ground almonds together, marzipan only tends to come out for holidays and celebrations. It’s most well known for being the layer between cake and icing on wedding and Christmas cakes. It is very widely used throughout Europe and Asia, it doesn’t appear as often in modern British baking. I first used it when I made some Easter Simnel Cupcakes. I suspect a lot of you have leftover marzipan after making Simnel cakes at Easter! Wrapped it cling film it will stay fresh and leftover marzipan can be used in one of the selection of recipes I have found below…
