The most adorable marzipan carrots, perfect for decorating any cake or baking project!
- Marzipan or Mock Marzipan
- Food coloring (liquid or paste)
- Cocoa powder
- Green tops of carrots
Color the marzipan orange either using orange food coloring paste or a mixture of yellow and red liquid food coloring (this is what I did).
Break off pieces of marzipan and roll into carrot-shapes.
Dampen a small knife and dip edge in cocoa powder. Carefully make indentations with the cocoa-dipped knife on the carrots to represent the soil. (You can also brush on the cocoa powder with a small brush).
Store carrots in a ziplock bag until ready to use.
Just before placing on desired dessert, use a round toothpick to insert a small hole in the top of the carrots. Slide in a piece of carrot frond.
