Almond Paste Or Marzipan
|Ground almonds||8 Ounce|
|Lemon juice||2 Teaspoon|
|Icing sugar/4 ounce icing sugar and caster sugar||8 Ounce|
|Almond essence||3 Drop|
|Rose water||4 Ounce (1/4 Ounce)|
Mix the almonds and sugar together.
Add the beaten eggs and the flavouring and mix and knead very thoroughly.
To cover a cake, turn upside down and brush over with melted jelly or a thick sugar-and water syrup to make the paste stick.
Roll a piece of paste into a circle the size of the top of the cake and roll strips for the sides.
Leave overnight to set before covering with white icing.
