While I was walking around Rustan’s Supermarket one time I was drawn towards the very pretty Waitrose shelf. I guess it couldn’t be helped. Everything on that shelf is soooo prettily packaged, though admittedly it does not fall under the affordable category. Yet my eyes were captured by this shiny gold foil that stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb. Little did I know this golden block would make me feel like I hit the jackpot in more ways than one. Marzipan, folks. I had finally found an ingredient I did not imagine I was going to be able to get my hands on anytime soon.
