Marzipan is a combination of almond meal, powder sugar and egg white. The ratio of each almond and sugar should be 1:1 and the egg whites needed based on how soft of marzipan you like it. Marzipan can be used as fondant, such as for rolling or molding into your favorite shapes. Here are my roses made by marzipan. Just simply color the marzipan by food color paste.
