Marzipan Cherries


We covered dried sour cherries in marzipan and luster dust, then added faux leaves on top for a touch of gold. For the stems and leaves of these cherries, we dismantled gold plastic foliage.

  • 3 1/2 ounces marzipan
  • 12 dried cherries
  • Luster dust, in tan opal


  1. Divide marzipan into 12 pieces. Flatten, and wrap around dried cherries, covering completely and rolling into a ball. Using a toothpick, make a hole at the top of each and an indent along one side. Brush with luster dust. Insert stems into top holes.
