Thank you

I make them for close friends, my wife does most of the decoration she is a lot younger than me so her hand eye coordination is better.

I can't decorate cakes, just bake them. I can write a poem, but trying to be artistic with medium from crafts to food is beyond me. I am in awe of those of you who can do it.

Never thought to make marzipan with cashews or pistachios, Shrek, my husband, would love that!

Do you make the walnut cake with walnut flour?

Is it unusual for a cake baker to also be a bread baker?
Bon Appétit

I have never seen walnut flour, I just add some blitz walnuts to the sponge batter.The best place for marzipan is Barcelona at christmas, there are a number of shops that just sell all types of marzipan, it is a Catalan tradition.

I like making both, patisserie is not cooking it is alchemy.Not to sound pompous but cooking is easy by comparison.
