I need to make some Bakugon Battle Drawlers for a cake and I want to try using marzipan. Do I need to do anything special to make sure it will dry and hold its shape. I haven't made it yet...any advice would be great. I have also never used marzipan, but it seems like people have been able to create very detailed figures with it.

Hi Tracy,
I've used marzipan for both figures and flowers. It dries hard, but not as hard as sugar-paste/ fondant/ gumpaste (with tylose).The big advantage is that it tastes really good!
Unfortunately I found that I was restricted in the level of detail I could add.
In my photos, the pirate ship has marzipan figures, and there are two cakes with marzipan flowers.
