What IS Marzipan?1 min read

Ahanu asked me this question at our unusually early morning breakfast (before 7 am) with Adriel. I conjectured that it was made of sugar and perhaps gelatin and something else, but really I don’t remember ever knowingly eating marzipan, so I had no idea. I just knew that it was used to make intricate details on cakes and edible shapes.

According to Wikipedia:

Marzipan is a confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal, sometimes augmented with almond oil or extract.

But I had no idea that the creations got quite so detailed and lifelike…
