Fun Food Holidays™ January 12th is National Marzipan Day
Considered a 'classier' cake topping, marzipan is a firm paste made of almond meal and sugar that spreads well and holds its shape on wedding cakes and other special occasion cakes. Shaped into small animals or fruits, it is eaten as a confection at times as well. Give some thought to marzipan the next time you bake a cake or just want to celebrate National Marzipan Day!
