(From Our Glossary Feature)
Marzipan is a sweetener usually made with ground almonds (or almond paste), sugar, and egg whites. It is sometimes used as a substitute for plain sugar in pastries and cakes, especially in European countries. Marzipan can be used as an icing for cakes, a filler for pastries, and even on its own as candy. In the latter case, marzipan is often made into shapes of fruits, vegetables, and animals.
