Talking about keeping with tradition....
Germany is where it's at, and this takes center stage.
Königsberger Marzipan just screams German.
This is a classical approach to a traditional pastry art. Königsberger Marzipan is an art that includes working a mass of Marzipan with a percentage of sugar (that is, of course, stated by law), forming it into a shape and flaming the top creating the nice brown color.
Ours were made as small showpieces, but they can typically be found formed into very small shapes that aren't much larger than a bite-seized piece.
This one is filled with Fondant, dipped in chocolate and decorated with a Marzipan rose and chocolate piping.
I'm all for the modern turn on baking and pastry, but sometimes it's also just as good to stick with the classics... I mean, the tradition was created for a reason in the first place, right?
Keep it classy...
