  • Do not refrigerate.

Preparation and Usage:

Knead marzipan until soft and pliable and roll out on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar.
Roll out to a thickness of approx. 5 mm (1/4 inch), lifting and turning to ensure the marzipan does not stick to the surface, until it is the correct size for your cake.
Thinly cover the cake with smooth apricot jam.
Use the rolling pin to help lift your marzipan and drape over the cake.
Smooth into position using the palm of your hand, working from the centre to the edges and down the sides.
Trim away any excess marzipan using a sharp knife.
For best results allow to dry to 24 hours before icing with Dr. Oetker Regal-Ice Ready to Roll Icing.
Marzipan is suitable for covering and modelling.
