I'm making a cake this weekend and I bought marzipan for one part of the cake, I also bought edible gold paint, my question is,
can marzipan be painted just like fondant? Will the marzipan "take" the paint?
Yes you can paint it!
All of the "Paul" battenburg cake decorations in my photos are marzipan, the coloured parts being painted. The thing I find about marzipan though it that it's not as smooth as fondant so doesn't generally produce as smooth a paint result.
Thank you Jennifer353!
