2½kg premium natural marzipan - produced by Renshaw especially for Cake Stuff

  • a firm set marzipan made from a unique blend of sweet Californian and bitter Mediterranean almonds for a mild flavour that won't overpower the cake
  • Californian almonds grow in orchards and have very little flavour - known in the industry as 'sweet'. To add flavour, we use 'bitter' almonds that grow wild on the Mediterranean shoreline of Morocco. Because these almonds grow wild the flavour intensity varies a lot and we can only use a small amount per batch (as wild almonds can be poisonous in large amounts), so the overall flavour of our marzipan is quite mild - which Cake Stuff customers love!
  • styled on continental almond paste recipes but at a fraction of the price
  • tested extensively with Cake Stuff Trade Customers over the past year, our new 'tweaked' recipe offers a flavour that balances really well with both sponge and rich fruit cakes
  • traditionally you needed a rich fruit cake to balance the strong flavour of almonds, but our marzipan is mild enough to be used with sponge and chocolate cakes
  • perfect for wedding, Christmas and richer celebration cakes as well as an ideal covering for sponge cakes - giving you a firm, smooth surface to apply your sugarpaste
  • PLEASE NOTE 2.5 kg packs are cut to order in our Clean Room from the 5kg packs as shown in photos
  • cutting is carried out in a professional, hygienic environment but please allow a tolerance of +/- 5% per pack
  • made by Renshaw - holders of the royal warrant
  • PLEASE NOTE the red plastic pack is industry standard to identify a potential allergen (nuts) - it does not identify a brand of marzipan, ie most brands uses pink / red packaging but that doesn't mean they're the same product
  • IMPORTANT - need more than 2.5kg? Our advice is don't buy this pack... 5kg RegalMarz also available at a better price.  If you order 2 x 2.5kg packs then that's what we have to send you and it's a good bit more expensive
  • 'natural' simply means no added colour - referred to in the industry as 'white marzipan'
  • 2½ kg / 2,500g / approx 5½lb
  • click here for our Cake Covering Guide
  • BBE date at least 3 months - PLEASE NOTE BBE dates are shorter than for full packs purely because it has been cut, but the marzipan comes from the same stock which normally has a BBE date of 6-12 months (full packs)
  • 2½kg pack is wrapped in clingfilm and tape but not vacuum sealed so has a shorter BBE date than the full 5kg pack
  • PLEASE NOTE - as a natural marzipan, small pieces of almond skin (not shell) are often present - these are completely natural and 100% edible
  • marzipan is not suitable for anyone with a nut allergy
  • suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • Kosher approved
  • can be coloured using concentrated paste, gel or powder/dust colourings
  • ingredients: sugar, almonds (min 25%), glucose syrup, invert sugar syrup, humectant Sorbitol E420, preservative Potassium Sorbate E202
  • contains Sorbitol - a naturally occurring sugar alcohol which is generally permitted for Halal
  • NOT IN THE UK? - marzipan cannot be shipped outside the UK by Air - long story, but basically commercial explosives have a scent added to them to make them detectable and that scent is almond; so marzipan could set off detectors or attract sniffer dogs resulting in all sorts of drama.  We can therefore only deliver marzipan within the UK or to European countries using road courier.

Fantastic find is saving us a fortune

We've always used Rencol marzipan but the price was going through the roof so we thought we'd try this out and are so happy we did. It feels and tastes every bit as good but the price is excellent and is saving us at least £100 a month and even more nearer Xmas
