Instructables
You need to mix up, three colors of Marzipan Dough.
White ( Blanched ),  Brown ( UN-blanched ) and Red ( food colored Blanch ).
To save cleaning it is best to start with White then move to Brown and last to Red dough.

You do need a gram Scale and a true Food Processor Grinder seen in picture #2

There is another ible that explains how to make the Amanita Muscaria appetizing
hallucinogenic mushroom simulations using the Doughs made here

This Is Real Old World Marzipan and has a Great Taste ! !

Don't confuse this with the fruity shaped marzipan fondant tasting
candy sold in US stores.

Step 1: WHITE MARZIPAN INGREDIENTS

For the WHITE Dough
  • 200 grams Blanched slivered Almonds.  Because slivered was only available in store
  • 150 grams of Confectioners' Powdered sugar
  • a large egg White
  • a ½ shot glass of Bacardi Rum for taste

Step 2: GRIND THE BLANCHED ALMOND NUTS

  • First grind the 200 grams of almonds.  See the Movie_a
  • Then add the 150 grams of powdered sugar and mix them well.  See the Movie_b
  • Now add the Egg White while the Sugar and Ground Almonds are spinning.  See the Movie_d
  • Finally add sugar if too wet or rum if to crumbly ( Dry ).   See the Movie_f
  • You Really want the dough to form a rolling ball of marzipan in the processor.

Take and store this White dough in a quart Zip Lock Bag to prevent premature hardening and drying.

Step 3: BROWN MARZIPAN INGREDIENTS

hmmm... must investigate the Amanita Muscaria ible! lol... I recently discovered some wild (?) Jimson weed growing next to an estuary off the Bay of Concepcion... but no thanks! 8-/

However, your marzipan recipe is one I'll definitely try.

Love the hand-formed Reindeer, too! ;-)
