Fancy marzipan costs like 3x-5x as much as marzipan for baking like this, but the flavor and texture is basically the same. The almond content hovers around 55%. Why would anyone buy the fancy stuff? I don't mean the chocolate covered stuff of course (but you should make those yourself as well).

It's a block of PURE MARZIPAN. You could use it for that.

i enjoy marzipan every once in a while. it tastes good, although not as good as say m&m's. it's not too hard or too soft. it has a unique lightness.

idk never seemed worth the effort, unless I wanted to make some sugar-free version but that would likely taste awful.

Kvetch more, it's the first generic brand image for a block

where the fuck do you buy marzipan
I've been looking for it ages at the local groceries but there's never any for the cake coverings I want to try.

Just go to any patisserie. In case you live in a superior country.

Cheap marzipan is dogshit whereas the good stuff is god-tier. If its less than 50% almonds it just tastes like garbage.

>where the fuck do you buy marzipan
Uh like any grocery store here. The generic store brand stuff is usually around 55% almonds (that's even the Lidl or Aldi version) and costs about 1.50€ for 200g here. I never bothered to check before and expected a big difference but there isn't really any unless you go for the top shelf stuff which might as well be just almond bricks. One problem though, normal marzipan might not be FOR MEN

it's right next to the divinity @ my grocery store...
