Marzipan

As a child, my mom would make various fruit and veggie shapes: peas, peaches, carrots, potatoes. For the peaches, dry brush a blush of red onto yellow peaches. For potatoes, don't bother to color, but roll into cocoa power. Poke little holes with toothpick for eyes. For oranges, put the flower end of clove in for a stem and roll on a grater to texturize like an orange.
