How to make iced bonbons:
These sweets require no cooking but icing them is rather tricky! Be careful serving raw egg to vulnerable groups.


marzipan paste (also known as almond icing)
3/4 cup (1/4 lb) icing/confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
little white of egg
pinch of salt
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Roll out the marzipan paste and cut into neat squares or fancy shapes with a sweet cutter.
- Leave for a few hours to dry and then coat with icing.
- To make the icing rub the sugar through a sieve, add the lemon juice and enough
whipped white of egg, to which the salt has been added, to form a thick cream consistency.
- Take each piece of marzipan on a skewer, and coat the top and sides with the icing.
- Smooth with a hot knife and leave in a warm place to dry.
