Starting the New Year on a sweet note ensures many happy months to come. That's why January 12 is National Marzipan Day. In celebration, Love'n Bake™ has created a FREE downloadable recipe booklet called All About Marzipan. The booklet tells the history of this old-world delight, how it is made and offers detailed instructions on using marzipan. Illustrated with color photographs of marzipan in many guises as well as step-by-step instructions on how to craft engaging edible sculptures, All About Marzipan will inspire amateurs and professionals alike.
A confection that dates to biblical times, marzipan is a mixture of healthy ground almonds and sugar, gently cooked into a pliable confection. Like edible modeling clay, marzipan can be formed into surprisingly realistic shapes. It can be tinted then rolled to provide a smooth surface on cakes. And it pairs well with chocolate for an ideal Valentine's Day treat.
