Today’s #InspirationFanatic Friday is a candy decorating venture in which you can create a moon made out of Marzipan to represent each moon phase. The candies are very easy and simple to make; it’s a great project for kids!
The brand of Marzipan I purchased from Amazon was Odense. I haven’t attempted to make my own Marzipan, in part because several of the recipes call for raw egg whites. Let me know if you have a go-to recipe that you recommend!
I used Wilton gel food coloring; make sure whichever kind you use is gel because the liquid in regular food coloring will soften the marzipan too much. If you use Wilton, use the Lemon Yellow for the moon; I started with the Golden Yellow and it ended up reminding me of Colby Cheese so I had to redo it. If you notice the color changing in my photos, that’s why.
This project could also be adapted for the upcoming solar eclipse and might be a fun treat to bring if you are having a potluck or gathering to celebrate.
