    Shouldn't use cornflour with Marzipan... best to knead with icing sugar particularly if going to use it to cover a fruitcake..

    Super sticky!!! 

    Mixture was waaaayyyy too sticky to work with! Even after adding more cornflour as suggested (lots, lots more). Nice enough taste raw anyway but will not be making again.

  • These were great. The icing

    Submitted by Benny on 14. May 2013 - 10:13.

    These were great. The icing sugar is actually the sugar you have milled. I cut them with a butterfly cookie cutter and dipped one wing in chocolate for a works morning tea. One guy ate 10 and still counting. A lot of people said that they don't like marzipan but after I convinced them to give it a try I had converted the room. These would be great in any shape for any occasion. cheers
