Marzipan Stars

Origins of foods are often difficult to pinpoint, but Luebeck claims to be the place where marzipan was invented. Marzipan, of course, is the confectionery that is molded into shapes of fruits, animals and ornaments, and colored so as to be almost unmistakable from the real thing. Legend has it that a local baker hit upon the idea during the famine of 1407. Having only four ingredients—sugar, almonds, eggs and rose water, he created the sweet confection known as marzipan.

Here comes the soap with almond oil and marzipan aroma. Guess, which one is soap and which one is candy? Yummi, they both taste very fine.
