Left over marzipan . . .

Christmas Cake has it's marzipan coat and there's some left over . . . methinks it's time to melt some dark chocolate, wrap it around balls of marzipan and then decorate with either a whole almond, dessicated coconut, flaked/toasted coconut, ground almonds or cocoa and a flourish of edible festive glitter. Into little Petit Fours cases and job's a good un - After dinner choccies sorted LOL x

There is no such thing as left over marzipan  However, there is such a thing as not enough marzipan.

Left over only insofar as not needed to coat the cake - it won't get wasted -me and OH love marzipan    and dark chocolate

Not keen on Christmas cake but I roll a layer of marzipan in the chocolate log..... and eat the leftover bits before I get chance to make them into choccies

I am in total agreement!

I don't like marzipan - not the shop bought stuff anyway.  the only one I have ever liked was when I made it by hand one year - hard work and expensive!  Great idea for left overs though would make an ideal christma gift

I'm another that doesnt like marzipan, however i do like almonds so i think it must be the texture more than the taste, that and the greasy feeling you get from it.......blurgh!!! My cake does have marzipan on it as the rest of the family like it, i just pick mine off and give it to the kids.

I totally agree with Gareth. I have been known to eat a whole block in a day.

Marzipan mixed with cognac soaked raisins and sultanas, rolled into smallish balls, then half dipped in chocolate.

I hate all the icing on Christmas/wedding cakes plus fruit cakes but Jean loves all so easy fix there
