Marzipan babies


It amazes me how some people can take the most unlikely of ingredients and transform them into creations you never thought possible.

Today my dh sent me photos from someone that talented. No doubt my husband was playing when he should have been working, but then don't we all? I am sure a little bit of looking will turn up some more, but it does take talent to work with a medium of almond paste. Sure, you could work with a chapel in Rome, or some fine marble. But almond paste?

Neat post, though I am wondering are they marzipan or not. At the top of the pictures I saw the following line:

*not* marzipan... resin, polymer & silicone works by Camille Allen; all of them are under 5" long.

Regardless as to how they are made, they are still amazing!

That is just so amazing. I'd like to see someone actually make one to see how long it takes and the different steps involved!

Great post!

Hi all, shame on you Melissa for your careful observation. Marzipan had so much more intrigue.

I have found Camille Allen's website and she offers these babies for sale on EBay.

You've gotta wonder why they called them marzipan if that wasn't what they were...heck, people are good at misdirection. I still really enjoyed the post and find these statues amazing!

There are actually really incredible edible babies, from marzipan, fondant, etc.

that is sold on www.etsy.com
look under the plants and edible section.


theres a shop called HMClifton that has little marzipan baby fairies, with pulled sugar wings. they are amazing, and way under priced.
