Join me (Camilla!) at Baa Baazaar, one of my favorite shops in town, for a cozy, creative and delicious afternoon of holiday fun!
I’ll start by demonstrating my boiled marzipan recipe, which we’ll then divvy up to each create an assortment of marzipan fruits (or vegetables or pretzels—you choose!). Next, everyone will decorate a mini fruitcake (chock full of dried & candied fruits, my Seville marmalade, pecans & Brazil nuts, and brandy aged for 2 months!) with royal icing. Whether you spackle or pipe, guild with marzipan fruits or candied fruit is up to you.
-to make the best homemade marzipan
-to transform the marzipan into fruit-shaped confections
-decorating techniques with royal icing

You’ll leave with:
