Thanks! Here in Germany, the finished marzipan tastes a little different everywhere. It also depends on what ingredients it was made from. Whether almonds, pistachios, apricot kernels ...
I don't use this ready-made marzipan !! I ride with "fine marzipan raw mass". This tastes pretty much the same for all brands. I buy mine at the supermarket. Available in 200g packs. To mix this with fondant, I add powdered sugar, otherwise it will be too greasy ... You can color the whole thing with gel paints. This marzipan and fondant mix has advantages and disadvantages. I would see the slightly glossy effect on the finished figures and the taste as an advantage. A small disadvantage: here too, the fat in the marzipan makes it harder to paint! However, it should work great with powder paints! Unfortunately I haven't tried it yet because I don't have any powder paints. I sometimes used cocoa powder as a powder color for the brown figures and that worked great!
I hope, it helps?
