    Need to use left over Marzipan, icing & mandar 31st Dec 04 at 7:35 PM
    Any suggestions what I could do to use marzipan, icing, wholemeal bread rolls, garlic clove & 12 mandarines, obviously not together!! ;D If I need to add anything I will more than likely have it in the cupboards as I cannot get the doors closed on them, too much shopping! Going to improve this year! :

    What about prettiful marzipan fruits ;D

    In true moneysaving style you could give them away as a present.

    Failing that you could always marzipan and ice a cake ;D

    Thanks for responding! !How do you make marzipan fruits? !

    Hmm - not sure if this was a joke or not ;D

    Colour bits of marzipan appropriate colours and shape! You know green for apples with a brown bit sticking up for the stalk ;D

    Could you make the mandarins into a rumptopf type thing by putting into a jar with alcohol and sealing?

    Not too sure about this but somebody will know ;D

    If the leftover icing is fondant or ready to roll try flavouring it with peppermint essence and cutting out little rounds (use top of a fizzy bottle) then you have peppermint creams. If you have orange flavouring make orange creams, can be half dipped in melted chocolate (left over of course) if you are feeling flash!!

    Makes me sad too!!!

    Got to stay in tonight to keep my daughter company as she has got mumps! She's not very happy, would rather not have the lumpy mumps and be out with her friends tonight!

    Can't you just eat the marzipan?! I know that's what I'd do.

    How about stuffed dates, if you have any. Just seed them, put a marzipan sausage in the slit and fole in caster sugar.

    You could make pizzas out of the left over roles.

    Garlic's always good in a steak sandwich. Use one of the baguettes from the freezer (BOGOF, of course!) and some of that frying steak that was on special offer in the supermarket. Fry garlic in butter and drizzle over the steak so that it will drip into the bread. V. yummy!

    All sorted or used now except 12 mandarines, any suggestions? Thought of making orange juice but they are too small and squirt every where.

    Strip them of their clothes and play out the Karma Sutra! ;D

    How about a mandarine cheesecake?
    Or, a trifle?
