the GOLDEN version of our best-selling 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 few months, 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
  • produced especially for us by J F Renshaw, holders of the Royal Warrant
  • this is the same quality as our best-selling natural marzipan but available in the traditional yellow / gold colour some of our customers prefer
  • PLEASE NOTE - small pieces of almond skin (not shell) are often present - these are completely natural and 100% edible
  • natural marzipan (no added colour) also available
  • 5 kg / 5,000g / approx 11lb
  • 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
  • click here for our Cake Covering Guide
  • BBE date normally at least 3-4 months - often much longer
  • marzipan is not suitable for anyone with a nut allergy but is suitable for vegetarians
  • can be coloured using concentrated paste, gel or powder/dust colourings
  • ingredients: sugar, almonds (min 25%), glucose syrup, added water, invert sugar syrup, humectant Sorbitol E420, preservative Potassium Sorbate E202, colour E161b
  • 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.

good almond paste

this was a very nice almond paste and i bought it because my customer specially requested old fashioned yellow marzipan but i normally get the white marzipan frm cake stuff instead. just as good and tastes the same

great value and quality

ideal for my Christmas cakes but I personally prefer the white marzipan when doing my wedding cakes. Can't fault it for value and quality
