Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: Silicon mold Atomizer

Marzipan molds: Franz Ziegler

This is a "recipe" that will let you explore your creative talents. There are no special tools necessary but you will find it handy to have at least the following on-hand: sharp paring knife, food colors, small paint brushes, atomizer (for applying color). Kids of all ages can participate so gather around the dining table and have fun!

The process is simply molding things between your fingers or using the palms of your hands. Try a few methods to find what works best for you. Have fun making different shapes. Some of the things I made included an apple, pumpkin, baby, dog eating a bone, whale, apricots, and an ear of corn, Try to give your figurines animated faces or crazy features.

You can buy tools for working with marzipan and molds for molding these figures. You can also use an airbrush, if you have one, to get a more refined look. Use a small paintbrush dipped in food colors to paint on the eyes, hair, stem, etc. You can also use meted chocolate as a paint.
