Sorry..I'm lokking for a good marzipan for a dragon sculpture. Where do I get that? thanks[/b]
I purchase Odense brand almond paste from the grocery store and make my own marzipan from Margaret Braun's recipe from her book Cakewalk. But we are remodeling and the book is in a box somewhere.
But if you go this route, and google you up a recipe what you wanna be careful of is that the stuff does not relax too much and morph out of whack when you go to shape it.
So get it all mixed and pinch off a piece and make a nice ball and let it set up for 10-15 minutes and if it flattens then add more sugar. Kinda obvious but that's what I do to make sure it is modeling strength.
But I like to get the Odense almond paste because I don't want to deal with all the blanching and removing the almond skins and all that.
The Braun's marzipan recipe
1/2 pound almond paste
3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon orange-blossom or pure vanilla extract
5 tablespoon light corn syrup (or glucose)
Well how sweet of you, Dulce, thanks so much!!
Thank you ladies!!! nice of you!
Would like to link it with another thread on marzipan.
