I've posted a recipe for a simnel cake (traditional for Mothering Sunday and Easter in the UK) - this uses marzipan.

Lots of upmarket sweetie shops here sell marzipan shaped into fruits, vegetables etc - they are beautifully handcrafted.

We made 3 of these in one week practicing on it. We lived it and the neighbors all loved it. However the judges didn't care too much for it.

Oh well, you win some, you lose some and you wreck some!

Judges are/can be a fickle animal.

So, let me see if I understand it correctly. The marzipan that is sold in the grocery store in little tubes can be made into those beautiful little pumpkins on your picture, is it correct?
