5oz (140g) semolina

5oz (140g) icing sugar, sifted

2 tsps custard powder (eg Birds)

1 egg white OR 1 tsp Egg Replacer OR 2 tblsps Aquafaba

2 tsps almond essence or vanilla essence or orange flower water

Tester’s Tips:

1 Almond essence is made using artificial flavourings and does not contain nuts. (But check the label to make absolutely sure).

Almond extract is a pure, natural product made from the oil of bitter almonds and should not be used if you’re avoiding nuts.

2 Wrap and store unrolled Nut-free Marzipan in clingfilm to prevent it drying out until ready to use.
