icing and marzipan
« on: December 24, 2012, 14:12 »
I've got some marzipan and fondant icing that I bought for my Christmas cake, which I never got around to making, but then OH went and bought a ready iced one.

Any ideas, not too complicated (because if I didn't get around to making a cake I'm probably not going to get around to that), on what I can make with bought marzipan and icing, before Christmas day.

No suggestions?! I'm surprised at you all! 

Perhaps you've got better things to do on Christmas Eve :)

No, just can't think of anything else apart from topping a cake  :blush:

Has it got a long enough life to just keep it until the next birthday?

I would suggest you keep it for another occasion. It will keep a while as long as it is still sealed. But....

If you like marzipan, you could try dipping small bits in chocolate to have around for those need-to-have-something-sweet moments.

One thing we used to have as a kid was a roll of marzipan, studded with glace cherries, wrapped in puff pastry, shaped into a round or horse shoe, and water iced and scattered with more cherries and toasted almonds. It is what I will do with my left overs next week, before the healthy eating kicks in.

BALLS!  or more specifically baubles,  edible jobs to hang on the tree.

Cheers,   Tony. :blink:

tosca, the chocolate dip thing looks promising.  I like the idea of the pastry horseshoe, but realistically, I probably wouldn't get around to it.
Edible baubles is good but we haven't got a traditional tree this year. We've got a light up cherry tree instead.
Just looked at the packets, I've got till November 2013 for the icing and February 2014 for the marzipan!  So no rush  :)
