Raw, vegan and gluten free? Homemade marzipan

Yesterday I met Kate and Liz here and brought along some homemade marzipan. Note that this is RAW, VEGAN and GLUTEN FREE, so it seems to cover most of the current food trends :-). Click here to see the recipe and step by step images (including how to use apricot kernels). Note that for colouring this time I didn't use berry juice but Fresh As raspberry powder, and also quite a bit of spiraling powder for a darker green hue. The nuts on top are optional, of course.

  1. Cara Alessandra, perfino il marzapane riesci a rendere bello , buono e naturale, quelle polverine colorate le utilizzerei molto volentieri anche io!

    ps ho parlato del tuo blog ad una producer di una trasmissione su Alice tv, ti verrà a cercare, virtualmente! :)


  2. Concordo con Lory.. questi dolcini al marzapane sono stupendi e mettono voglia di assaggiarli all'istante <3 :)) Complimenti carissima, un abbraccio e un bacione immenso!!

  3. Wow... your homemade marzipan look so pretty!!!

  4. We know something about marzipan here in Sicily. These are so cute, I can't believe you made them. I wouldn't think of going through all that trouble. Really fantastic, brava!

  5. Francesca, probably can just buy marzipan soon as you are out of the door so you don't need to make it, but here it is not so easy to find, so it is better to make it! :-)

  6. look beautiful! I love marzipan Alessandra!!!
