Has anyone had experience painting details (with gel color/vodka mixture) on marzipan? I have never used marzipan and I am considering it for some fruits/veggies (just a little smaller than actual size). Are there any challenges working with it for this kind of project? Or would I just be better off using fondant?

Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

i presume it would be similar to working with fondant. IVe worked with marzipan alot but never painted it, ive coloured it with gels and it colours quite well. But the marizpan has more of a rough texture compared to fondant so you might find it a little more grainy when your painting it
