If you have an Italian specialty store near you, they will have almond paste. Other supermarkets carry it, but sometimes they only carry it around the holidays.

Almond paste and marzipan are not the same. I had to check several stores to find it in California. You could try Amazon.

Is almond paste the same as marzipan? We don't have a product called almond paste here in Australia.
