Beautiful Marzipan Cake

Mouth Watering.. Isn't it
Mouth Watering.. Isn't it

This recipe has been sent to me by a very close friend of mine. His name is Ørjan G. Bjørnådal. He is from Norway. He is not only a very good cook but also a professional football player. He plays for a second division club in Norway. He loves to bake and his specialties in cooking include cakes and other baked goods. He has been gracious enough to let me publish one of his recipes on my blogs. For those who do not know what Marzipan is , then the definition of Marzipan is that it is a confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal, sometimes augmented with almond oil or extract. It is often made into sweets; common uses are marzipan-filled chocolate and small marzipan imitations of fruits and vegetables. It is also rolled into thin sheets and glazed for icing cakes, primarily birthday and wedding cakes and Christmas cakes.
So here is the recipe in words of my good friend Ørjan G. Bjørnådal

Marzipan cake:


Marzipan cake is usually baked around Christmas and it is not only easy to make but also very tasty. Children love it all over the world. Even though it has cream and jam but surprisingly it is not very hard for the stomach and can be easily digested. But it does have calories so caution is needed and should be eaten in moderation.
