On the day of Epiphany, I made this figure of marzipan. She is a little french girl, maybe 4 or 5 years old, she just got the little “five” in her piece of cake and just looked up to see her mother. Her eyes are telling “Mama, I got it!!” 🙂
Working with marzipan was fun, although it has so much sugar in it and my knife gets very sticky, but I think I love this kind of work. It is completely edible. the colors come from food as well. The pearls on the figure are cake decoration pearls made of sugar. Only the paper plate will be left on your plate if I serve this to you as it is a paper cup for bento which was made smaller to match the size with the figure. The total height is about 7cm, so it is not so big. It took about 60 minutes to make this. Here are photos from the making process. Enjoy!!
