    Makes: 10 

    • 250g icing sugar
    • 250g finely ground blanched almonds
    • 2 egg whites
    • 1 tablespoon brandy
    • extra icing sugar for kneading and shaping the fruits
    • 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. With your hands slightly coated with icing sugar, knead the marzipan for a minute or so. Add food coloring at this point. To make the different fruits, just start from a small ball of marzipan (2 to 3cm) and give it shape, details and texture accordingly. Add the final details with royal icing.
