Marzipan Candy21 Reviews
“Marzipan can be a great cover for a cake, or cut out fun shapes to decorate cakes, cookies, or eat alone. You will need a little frosting to glue the marzipan to a cookie or cake and it can make for a yummy treat. It is especially yummy on a cake with cream and a little bit of your choice of jam between the layers!” - by DARLING975
Original recipe yields 1 pound marzipan
- Break the almond paste into small pieces over a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar, and work it in with your hands until incorporated. It will be crumbly. Add another 3/4 cup of sugar, and work it in really well. Pour in the corn syrup, and work it in until evenly blended. Spread remaining sugar out on a clean work surface, and knead the dough until smooth and uniform, 3 to 5 minutes. If the dough seems too sticky, knead in more sugar. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about an hour. It should have the consistency of modeling dough.
- Break off small pieces of marzipan to color, kneading in color thoroughly until you arrive at the desired color. Then blend the colored pieces into larger portions of dough. Dust a work surface and rolling pin with confectioners' sugar, and roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using small cookie cutters to make candies.
