Why oh why does marzipan have to taste like marzipan? It's so lovely to look at and you can make such adorable little things with it. I just wish it tasted like, well, anything other than it does. Every Christmas my great aunt Mary used to bring over a plate of amazing handmade marzipan fruits and ever year I would try one thinking maybe, just maybe, this time it wouldn't taste like THAT. But it did. And it does.
