A favorite for desserts and cake decorating, marzipan is a tasty, nutty treat that you can easily make at home. No special tools or equipment are necessary, you'll need a mixing bowl and your hands, that's all. Marzipan is made with just three ingredients you can find in the grocery store; almond paste, confectioners' sugar, and light corn syrup. Four ingredients if you count the vegetable shortening you'll use to coat your hands so the marizpan doesn't stick to them.
