How to Apply Almond Paste

Almond Paste

Almond paste is a quick and easy way to decorate your fruitcake for the holidays. Follow our step-by-step instructions and elevate your fruitcake to the next level.


  • Almond paste is made from ground almonds, sugar and glycerine or other liquid. 
  • It may also be called marzipan, but real marzipan is a candy made from almond paste, sugar and sometimes egg whites. 
  • One package (1/2 lb/225 g) of almond paste will cover the top of an 8-inch cake 1/4 inch thick. 
  • Almond paste may dry out. To soften, place between two slices of fresh bread and into a sealed bag. Let stand at room temperature until softened, about 2 - 4 days.
