Recipe Notes

Keep the marzipan tightly wrapped in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

When kneading food coloring into the marzipan, wearing disposable latex gloves will help keep the color off your hands.

Marzipan can be colored and shaped into whatever your heart desires.

Corn syrup is useful for attaching pieces of marzipan together, as in the carrots and the carrot tops.
