Hi everyone.
What is 'plastic icing'?
I want to make little marzipan decorations to put on cupcakes for a kiddies party, but one of the kids is allergic to nuts, so I'm worried about the almond paste.
Is plastic icing something similar to marzipan? And - if so - how do I make it?
(I'm new here, so please forgive me if I'm doing this wrong.) :angel:

I think your talking about fondant, it's kinda plastic, at least to me. I'm sure you can make it but i'm not sure... The only thing I do know for sure is that it is nothing like marzipan... :)

Thanks everyone.
I'm not sure either, but I'll definitely try those fondant links.
Don't know about the lemon essence either - I still have so much to learn.Thanks again. :-p

These links have been very helpful. Thank you so, so much.
I'll certainly have to do some practicing first, but I'm sure it'll be fine.
Thanks Janet.
