Marzipan Clay

Fun and tastes good too!

Marzipan Clay

Marzipan is a confection that dates back to about the Middle Ages. This is a easy version of that can be used to create your own model confections. This clay is both pliable yet strong enough that you sculptures can be quite detailed. You can also “paint” the clay with food coloring or colored sugar powder.

Colored sugar powder is made by pulverizing color sugar crystals. You can do this by hand with a plastic bag and rolling pin; or, you can process the colored crystals in a small food processor until it is ground as fine as you would like it.

1 package (8 ounces) almond paste (found in baking section of grocery store)
1 cup confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
2 tablespoons light corn syrup

1. Break the almond paste into smaller pieces and place in a bowl.
2. Gradually stir in the confectioners’ sugar and light corn syrup.
3. Knead on wax paper until smooth.
4. Mold clay.
5. Let the shapes dry to the touch before eating.

*Children should always be supervised when preparing or cooking in the kitchen.
