Marzipan art in Berlin

Here’s a cute little slideshow from Serious Eats showing how marzipan is shaped by hand in a little shop in Berlin. From the headline, I was expecting marzipan fruits (I remember being a kid and watching this Martha Stewart segment on marzipan fruit in absolute awe), but the little curlicues were pretty too.

I took this above photo of marzipan bananas in a French confection shop. Between the slideshow and Martha and looking at old marzipan photos in my flickr, I now have some serious marzipan cravings.
