Working with Marzipan

I’ve been wanting to try working with Marzipan for a while now but I couldn’t find it.  The other night we went to the grocery store and there it was!  Apparently it’s something they only carry for the holidays. 

I thought it would be fun to make cute little animals with it but felt I should start with something easier since I’ve never been good at sculpting cute little animals :/

I watched two videos on YouTube about making a Marzipan rose and guess what?  It’s super easy!  Even I can do it!  I think it came out pretty good and it took me less than 5 minutes (not including coloring the dough).  Marzipan is so much easier to work with than fondant… I might actually try making cute little animals!!!
