Is it okay to mix Marzipan with icing sugar and butter to make buttercream?
Hi Anya: Butter cream is a lot different than icing sugar and butter mixed with marzipan. Marzipan has sugar, cream of tartar, ground almonds and egg whites. The base of marzipan is almonds so it would have a distinct taste. Butter cream usually has vanilla as its flavoring. Try a little amount and see what you think. It might be hard to mix in the marzipan, I’m not sure. You may have invented something wonderful! I’ve had some great success and huge flops when experimenting but you learn and it’s really fun.
