Marzipan, in years all told, and I am in childhood mode. Parties where my mum would either buy a cake, with marzipan covering the top like a blanket. Or she would get one of her sisters to bake a cake with marzipan.
My ode to marzipan is a short one because I’m not the biggest fan. I would often pick away the covering and just eat the cake. I love icing though, so to take a load of the dieting, I will eat only that.
It can be an old fashioned add to cakes these days, unless you are getting married. There is always marzipan on a wedding cake. I’m trying to think of the cake that has pink and yellow squares inside. Not sure of the name – but I will eat that.
Whatever, I’M going to reload – I have been good all week with my diet, and now I am hungry. Got asked if I wanted pizza for dinner. My brain went into, you deserve it mode, and I said yes (ham and pineapple). I know, not everyone’s favourite.
