Traditional Marzipan For Christmas Cake

Homemade marzipan is easy to make and so much nicer to eat freshley made by yourself

Ingredients

How to make marzipan

  1. Mix all the ingredients together well.  Use your hands if you want, but make sure that they are very clean first. 
  2. Put 4 tablespoons of apricot jam into a small pan and gently heat until runny.  Spread this over the cake. 
  3. Halve the marzipan and using a rolling pin, flatten it out and then place on top of the cake.  With the palm of your hands and fingers, smooth it all over the top of the cake. 
  4. Using the second half of the marzipan, smooth this out using a rolling pin and slice in half lengthways.  Using the top half of marzipan,  curve it around part of the side of the cake.  Now take the rest of the marzipan and curve this around the rest of the cake.  Now using your hands and fingers, smooth the marzipan around the edges of the cake, making the join between the pieces, and trimming where necessary.
  5. If you have any excess marzipan, eat and enjoy.
  6. Cover and leave to dry.  In a couple of weeks time, the cake will be ready for icing.
