Christmas Calendar 2013 Day 11 - Christmas marzipan cake

New Year is just around the corner, and here the tradtion is to celebrate the New Year with champagne and marzipan cakes (in Danish = kransekage like the white version of these zebra marzipan cake).

Well, as I got tried of the overwhelming sweetness in the Christmas candy: dates with marzipan stuffing, I decided to use the rest of the marzipan stuffing to make a Christmas version of marzipan cake.

It is actually a great taste combination, which can be used for both Christmas as well as New Year :-)

Christmas marzipan cake:
  • 75 g walnuts
  • 300 g marzipan
  • 2 organic mandarins - zest and juice
  • 4-6 tablespoons icing sugar
  1. Roast the walnuts at 180'C for 8-10 minutes.
  2. Remove the skin of the walnuts by rubbing them with paper towel.
  3. Chop the walnuts into medium chunks.
  4. Knead the chopped walnuts, mandarin zest and juice together with the marzipan. If needed add the icing sugar to adjust the texture from being wet to dry.
  5. Use teaspoons to place the marzipan mass on a baking tray covered by baking paper.
  6. Bake the marzipan cakes in the (conventional) oven at 220'C in the upper of the oven for 8-10 minutes.
  7. Lets the marzipan cakes cool down, before they are stored in an air tight container.
