  • Caster sugar : 250 g
  • Ground almonds : 300 g
  • Whole egg(s) : 2 whole
  • Powdered food colouring : 4 g
Method
  • ETAPE 1

    Place all of the ingredients into a large bowl and combine by hand to form a stiff dough. Separate the marzipan into as many different colours as you want. Add the food colouring to each piece of marzipan and mix well.

  • ETAPE 2

    When the marzipan has all been coloured, take a small pinch of each colour, press them together gently to form a marble effect. Once combined, shape the mixture into a smooth egg.

  • ETAPE 3

    Sit the eggs on top of Easter cupcakes or on desserts for a fantastic seasonal garnish.

Chef's tip

«Ensure the eggs in this recipe are medium sized or the marzipan will be to wet to roll.»
