- 300 g ground almonds
- 100 g granulated sugar
- 350 g confectioners' sugar
- 2 drops almond essence (optional)
- 2 egg white
- 1 food processor
Put ground almonds, granulated sugar, confectioners' sugar, and almond essence (optional) into a food processor and pulse until the mixture comes together into a fine powder. Gently add the egg white and whiz the whole lot together until it comes together.
Dust a work surface with some icing sugar, then tip the marzipan dough out. Gently bring it together with your hands until it makes a smooth dough. You don’t want it to be sticky at this point, so you may need to add more icing sugar.
Then simply roll the marzipan out; ready to cover your cake.
