Incredible Edible Art Mediums Passed on From Iran

Did you know marzipan originated in Persia (Iran today)? I didn’t until now. Judging by its ubiquity in Germany, I assumed it was a western European creation, so I was quite surprised.

Regardless of origin, marzipan is one of the most pliable foods that lends itself to unlimited creative possibilities. Dessert chefs and amateurs alike create incredibly edibles by sculpting and painting the almond paste. The gallery shows some of the tremendous works from Marzipan Meets Art and Gaweiss.

In many places, the sweet is a traditional Christmas treat, so whether you opt to make your own from an Persian/Iranian recipe or you buy the big brand Lübecker Marzipan, it makes for a wonderful, international winter snack.
