Almond paste is a component in marzipan; my experiences with almond paste were with a product that didn't lend itself very well to modeling or cake covering

However...

Frangipane galettes! Mmmm!! A nice pastry dough, a thin layer of almond paste, and a layer of fresh peach slices on top, bake at 325 until the pastry is nice and done... add a glaze with peach schnapps and top with a little whipped cream, and I'm in heaven. icon_smile.gif

I've had mine for awhile. Clearance Isle at Micheals when they where going out of business. But I seen some at the grocery stores in the isles with the cake decorating items..But I started to play with mine last night, trying to mold something out of it..I think I have an old batch..It just crumbled in my hand like dried up dough..Any suggestions on how to keep it from being dry?

It's been my experience that almond paste is supposed to be somewhat crumbly and dry (it usually is when I biy it and it never affects my baking). I believe it is marzipan (a very close cousin of almond paste) that you use for molding and covering cakes.

diane, I would trade places with you in a heart beat. I have my home somewhat decorated in an italian (wine/brick/stucco/oldworld) kind of theme..(sigh) I can only dream of Italy. I want to bring Italy to my front yard, but where do I start. I love stone and stucco..But I think I would go broke trying to vision Italy in my front hard...lol
