hi,

i've made figures out of marzipan in the past. a friend has asked if i can make a figure of a man playing the guitar. i'm a real novice so was wondering if people recommend making it out of icing or out of marzipan.

any other tips or ideas greatly appreciated.

Hi, welcome to CC and congradulations on your first post!

I have no experience making figures from marzipan. I always make them with 50/50 mix of store bought fondant and gumpaste or add 1/2 a teaspoon of CMC/ Tylose powder to 250g fondant.

When you make the standing figure make sure you insert dry speghetti in each leg for stabality. And remember to tell the customer about it as sometimes children do like to each these figures!

HTH.
