Marzipan is primarily a mixture of sugar and almond paste. When mixed with a moistening agent, marzipan reaches a soft dough consistency that can be easily rolled, molded, shaped and cut. Marzipan is an almond and sugar paste used to ice cakes and other pastries. When used to ice a cake, marzipan is rolled into a thin sheet and draped over the cake, usually with a fruit glaze applied between the cake and marzipan so that the icing sticks more securely. Once the marzipan is draped over the cake, the sides are carefully smoothed down so that the icing is uniform and free of bubbles or wrinkles. Marzipan is also a popular item for cake decorators to create shapes to be eaten as candy or used as cake decorations.
