Marzipan is an elegant dessert that has its roots in the culinary traditions of the house of Tudor, where it was a favorite dessert centerpiece at lavish royal banquets. Made with a combination of simple ingredients, marzipan cake as we know it today consists of almond flour, natural sweeteners such as sugar or honey, and eggs for moisture. The sponge cake has a soft and delicate texture that melts in your mouth with a nutty and buttery bite. Marzipan is a popular holiday dessert during the Christmas season.
How is marzipan used?
Marizan is commonly served as a dessert or sweet snack. Because of its flexible form, bakers can mold marzipan into lifelike shapes such as miniature fruits and animals. Other popular variations include marzipan served in a loaf. For example, Niederegger Lubeck is a specialty German marzipan loaf cake covered in chocolate and frequently served as a holiday dessert. When you buy marzipan chocolate from Supermarket Italy, you can easily transform a basic loaf into a stunning centerpiece for the dessert course. Simply serve a marzipan cake whole and cover with toppings like fresh raspberries, strawberries, chopped nuts, and whipped cream.
