A 2 hour relaxing, fun and interesting course for anyone wanting to learn the art of making Marzipan Fruits. I will demonstrate and then guide you step by step to making your own Oranges, Lemons and Limes. You will learn about the use of marzipan, colouring technique, shaping and finishing touches, along with Ideas of how to store, display or give Marzipan Fruits as a gift. You will learn the skills to make approximately 30 pieces to take away (depending on how much marzipan you eat whilst making them!) Suitable for all abilities. No previous experience needed. You don't need to be artistic. The methods you will learn are not complicated and I will help you get the best results, which will be both satisfying, and cheaper than buying them in the shops! Once you have made your fruits you can eat them, take them home, or as Marzipan keeps really well, keep them to give as a gift at a later date. Ample Free Parking: Keysoe Village Hall is set in the beautiful village of Keysoe (on the B660) North Bedfordshire. There are Disabled/Mobility spaces by the main entrance. Nearest train stations are St Neots (9 miles) and Bedford (12 miles). N:B Marzipan is made from Almonds (NUTS). Courses run on Sunday and Monday mornings (10am- 12) and afternoons (1pm -3pm) Please see other listing for the afternoon course dates). Please note I need a minimum of 4 people for the course to go ahead. I will let you know on the Tuesday before your course if it is unlikely to go ahead.
