We were just thinking about how much we love marzipan. So tasty, so gastronomically superior to fondant.
But marzipan is one of those things that can be done really well, or can just as easily fall off the wagon into the territory of hyper-kitsch. We would like to see some cake makers bring back the art of marzipan sculpture. See how charming marzipan can be?
How 'bout them apples!?
Aren't they just edible?! (Why yes, yes they are.)
