Let's get ready!!
You can make this decoration by either using sugarpaste
or marzipan. You will need the following equipment and ingredients:
Marzipan - recipe - buy it
or Sugarpaste - recipe - buy it
red food color
Cookie cutter heart shape
Before modelling, the marzipan is kneaded until smooth and colored as
needed. Only food colors can be used which
are available in a paste,
powder or liquid form. The color is firmly mixed into the marzipan until
the desired shade has been reached. Go easy on the colors, they are
rather strong! You can always add more! If the color is too strong,
simply add some more white marzipan to lighten it.
Marzipan that is too firm can be softened by adding some sugar syrup. If
the marzipan is too soft simply add some sifted icing sugar (powdered
sugar) until the preferred consistency is reached.
