Directions
  • 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.
