Homemade Marzipan Easter Eggs
Easter isn’t complete without Easter eggs. you can make these with cooked or uncooked marzipan as I have here. Personally, the uncooked marzipan has a smoother texture. These homemade marzipan Easter eggs are quick and easy to make.
Unlike commercial marzipans, I use an almost 1:1 ratio of cashews or almonds to powdered sugar/icing sugar. Commercial marzipan has two parts of powdered sugar for every one-part cashews or almonds which I think is too sweet. You can of course place with that ratio as well. Commercial marzipan also uses egg whites as a binding agent but to avoid eating raw eggs I use rose water or sugar syrup to combine.
If you want to use cooked marzipan instead you will find my recipe for cooked marzipan here.
