    Marzipan Class hosted by Delicious Magazine for Renshaw

    I had a great day in London at the wonderful Delicious Magazine’s HQ teaching some of their keen cakey readers all about using marzipan for perfect cake covering and decorating. It was a great day and everyone loved working with the Renshaw marzipan (and eating it of course).

    Check out the website here to learn how to cover a Christmas cake (or any cake in fact) with Marzipan to achieve a great professional finish on your cakes at home. Enjoy!
