i want to make these but have no idea where i can get marzipan from
Oh, goodness. Those both sound and look delicious, yet they're so adorable, I would never. I really want to try out manipulating marzipan some times. It seems difficult and messy. Did you have too much trouble with it?
I found the marzipan in the baking aisle of my supermarket. Or there is a Martha Stewart recipe on her website to make your own with almond paste. I just bought the ready made stuff in the tube because it was the same price as the can of almond paste.
I just rolled out the marzipan on a silicone mat thing and then cut out the little cat heads with a circular cookie cutter that I bent to make oval. It helped to sprinkle a little cornstarch on the marzipan if it got too sticky and warm. It's really easy and fun. Like playing with play dough. You should try!
