A tasty fudge-like food that is made from almonds. Tastes very good when dipped in chocolate (although that isn't very period)

Marzipan is easily made using ground almond meal and egg yolks. It molds and sculpts very easily and therefore is very often used in the creations of subtleties. It also takes food dyes and paint well. Ground almond meal is quite expensive if you buy it from a supermarket, but in Australia it only costs around $9 per kilogram from the market or a place like Hindustan Supermarket, Greens Rd, Dandenong in Melbourne (which is THE place to buy cheap spices, including many hard to get ones).
