Marzipan

2 cups ground almonds
1-1/4 cups superfine sugar
1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1 egg
1-2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp almond extract

Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk the egg with the
lemon juice and almond extract and add this to the almond and sugars
in the bowl.

Mix thoroughly to form a pliable paste. Wrap in plastic wrap until
needed. Roll out onto a work surface dusted with a little sifted
confectioners' sugar. Create your shape.

Specialty cake decorating shops sell a wide range of colors including
black. Only the thick paste colors must be used to color the
fondant, as liquid colors will make it too wet. Simply knead in
thoroughly to the ready-made fondant. Colored lustre powders are
available to brush on after the icing has dried to shape. Different
effects can be achieved by applying the colors not only with a soft
brush but on a sponge. A pale wash of color can be painted on the
icing and allowed to dry, then a fairly dry brush can be dragged
across to give a wood grain effect.
