How To Make Marzipan Candy & Cake Decorations : Marzipan Rose Dessert Recipe


Hi I’m Rachel Dayan for Expert Village. Now
I’m going to show you how to make small roses to decorate a cake. I took a piece of red
marzipan, I put in a baking sheet, I’m going to cover it with another piece of baking sheet
because marzipan is sticky and we don’t want the rolling pan to stick to the marzipan.
Take a rolling pan and just roll it down, it should be nice and thin. Now I’m going
to take a little cup and make circles with it, 3 little circles. Take those 3 little circles and put it one
on top of the other and we are going to start rolling our first one on the side. We are
going to roll them all together. We are going to take a knife and cut it in the middle it
is going to make use to roses 1 and 2. For the leaves you could either take you can either
make them from marzipan or I use mint leaves and put them on one side of the rose. There
you go.

  1. Eh. It fills a niche. Good for those of us who occasionally have to make a cake and don't want to make a career out of making fondant roses.

  2. having done this a lot of times during my cook-education in a restaurant, i can say that she overcomplicated it a bit, but looks like a pretty good trick for everyone at home, so nice done!
    they don't look "perfect", but hey at least your guests will know you made them yourself and didn't buy them!!!

  3. OMG !!! Gloves ?!!!!
    Are you working in a nuclear power station ?
    No !!!
    You just touch food !!! So you don't need gloves !!!

  4. she did not do a neat job with the rose's but she did give us a nifty idea of how to make a rose especially if some 1 wants to make it without having to buy the $ 20 flower making set

    You mean how to make marzipan? Marzipan is made of extremely fine ground almonds. You can find the recipe or even tubes of marzipan at candy and chef specialty stores. You will have to dye it the color you desire yourself, and you shouldn't use a food coloring that is gel based. 🙂

  6. you nead almonds that have bin dipped in boiling water so you coud peal of the skin then you nead refined sugar and sirup made of potato or corn that is named glukos where I live and som refined sugar
    then you put that in a blender I beliv it shoud be around 40% alomond 30% glukos then sugar
    perhaps som boling water to

  7. @kaara8722 you certainly can use sugar paste, i prefer to use sugar 'florist' paste to make flowers, it drys super hard and makes for beautiful roses as you can roll it so thin its see through 🙂

  8. ok ok waite… what was that!! first you say small cup when its a shot glass and how are you an expert when those didnt even turn out like roses? i mean come on lady you dont use circles to make a rose your suppost to use a teardrop shape and wow only 3 theres 3 in the middle then 5 in the center and then 7 on out outside… your showing peole the wrong way of making roses!!!

  9. mmm you can make those roses much easyer and beautifuller and if the marzipan sticks to much use some sugar powder NOT FLOWER !!!and the idea to use the shot glass is good but its not easy if the marzipan sticks to much if the roses are 2 cm they can brake and the results are not pretty xxx

  10. @SUPERDOOPERTUBER easy recipe 500g (16 oz) sifted icing sugar (confectioner's sugar)
    450g ( 1lb) ground almonds
    2 egg whites
    1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring marzipan book
    1 tsp lemon juice

    Sift the icing sugar in a bowl with the ground almonds. Add the remaining ingredients and mix to make a stiff paste. Knead until smooth. (As a substitute to raw eggs it is possible to use a little water mixed with brandy to bind the paste) good luck

  11. I looks like she has blood on her fingers.I wonder what she used to make the marzipan red????*freaks out*

  12. Hi there. Sorry for being negative, but your marzipan is way too thick. I personally don't think the look very nice as roses don't have tears in their leaves and they certainly aren't this thick and chunky. Sorry, but in my opinion, I wouldn't call myself expert if you are producing this.
