First of all you can make your decoration in advance, but it will get dry in the air , but when you cover it with a plastic wrap (sorry I really don´t now what it is in english) it will keep fresh for a while.

You can do the same things with it, as you do with fondant, but it wan´t be that delicate, because of its structure. Also as Marzipan is a little yellow, you wan´t get the clear colors as with fondant (light blue will be difficult, as the blue and the light yellow, from the marzipan, will become: green).

But one thing is easier: it wan´t dry out as quick as fondant, so you can remodel and try again. icon_biggrin.gif
