American Almond Almond Marzipan (8 lb. Can)

Nutty and sweet, extremely flavorful, almond marzipan is one of the most sought-after confections in the world, popular with candy makers, cake decorators and bakers alike. There are several brands out there, but this one is quickly becoming the standard not only for home baking, but in top pastry kitchens as well. The reason is simple. American Almond brand Almond Marzipan is both incredibly delicious and easy to work with, because itís made using the perfect balance of fresh almonds and sugar and has all the qualities that bakers demand. The naturally pliable paste, made with 40% almonds, has the consistency of a soft dough and can be easily spread, molded, shaped, rolled out, cut or tinted as needed to create truly sensational sweet treats. It is perhaps best known for its ability to hold shape (and provide a heavenly flavor and aroma) when cut or molded into flowers, fruits, animals or any other 3-D decoration you can imagine.

While almond marzipan makes a wonderful ingredient for many delectable baked goods and candies, perhaps its most decadent use is as a topping for wedding cakes. However, the marzipan icing is not applied with a spreading knife, but rather rolled out on a board and draped over the cake. Smooth out the air bubbles and cut the edges, and you have a beautiful, virtually perfect field of frosting upon which to build your decorations (more marzipan!)óand the taste is positively heavenly. In bakeries and pastry houses, almond marzipan is required for making many of their traditional Old Country selections. And in the home kitchen, for many the holiday baking blitz could never be completed without having a good supply of this essential ingredient on hand. Our 8-lb. can fills the bill perfectly, and at a price thatís hard to beat!


    Sugar, almonds, corn syrup, synthetic bitter almond oil, potassium sorbate (a preservative).

Excellent product!
This brand Marzipan is always my choice as it is very pliable and of excellent quality to cover my Fruit cakes before decorating. The delivery was speedy.
ProsQuality, taste and color

Great product. Best marzipan I have ever worked with. Made the covering of 5 cakes a breeze.
ProsSoft, pliable but strong when rolling and placing on cake
ConsVery difficult to get out of can. I tried taking off both ends of and pushing through but no way. So I had to cut some out to get the rest out.

Best marzipan on the US market
Have used Amer Almond marzipan for many years in my bakery. I think it is the best on the market. Superior Nuts price, ordering, and quick delivery is also "superior."

Excellent Product
This is the first time I ordered Almond Mazipan to ice a rich fruit cake for a wedding, and I was pleasantly surprised and extremely pleased with the product. Previously I had always made Mazipan from ground almonds - a tedious job indeed. I highly recommend Almond Mazipan - easy to work with and tastes very good! I would definitely use this product again - a good base for a rich English Fruit cake, before applying Royal or Fondant icing!
ProsEasy to knead, roll and apply to the cake. The taste and texture - excellent.
