Whether you like its texture, versatility, or sweet almond flavour best, it’s hard to deny that marzipan is an absolutely delicious treat! We’ve certainly purchased some delicious marzipan before that we very much enjoyed, but we’re also the kind of enthusiastic DIY lovers that always feel more accomplished when we’ve made something ourselves, no matter what it is.
