    Makes: 10 

    • 250g icing sugar
    • 250g finely ground blanched almonds
    • 2 egg whites
    • 1 tablespoon brandy
    • icing sugar for kneading and shaping
    • food colouring

    Prep:10min  ›  Extra time:12hr chilling  ›  Ready in:12hr10min 

    1. Mix the icing sugar, almonds, egg whites and brandy in the blender until they are all completely blended together and the marzipan is formed. Chill in the fridge, covered with cling wrap for at least 12 hours to harden. If not hard enough, let it chill for another 6 to 12 hours.
    2. Remove marzipan from fridge. Coat your hands lightly in icing sugar and knead marzipan for about 1 minute. Separate marzipan into different portions, depending on how many and which fruits you'd like to make, and knead in food coloring to the different portions. To make the different fruits, start with a 2 to 3cm ball of marzipan and give it the shape, details, and texture depending on the fruit you are shaping.
