Fastelavnsboller med marcipan fyld - Shrovetide buns with marzipan filling


The traditional Danish "fastelavns"/Shrovetide song is like this:

Fastelavn er mit navn                                             Shrovetide is my name
Boller vil jeg have                                                    Buns I would like to have
Hvis jeg ingen boller får                                          If I get no buns
Så laver jeg ballade                                                When I will make trouble

Boller op, boller ned                                               Buns up, buns down
Boller i min mave                                                   Buns in my tummy
Hvis jeg ingen boller får                                         If I get no buns
Så laver jeg ballade                                                When I will make trouble


So in order to celebrate this song, I have been baking fastlavnsboller this afternoon with a marzipan filling. The filling could also have been jam or a vanilla cream. However, my preference is marzipan filling.
