Ingredients Nutrition


  1. All you do is put the ingredients for the cakes, except the orange juice, in a food processor and chop finely.
  2. Then add the orange juice, if the mixture is a little dry.
  3. After that, divide the mixture into eight, and use your hands to shape them into small cakes, about 4cm square.
  4. Now dust the work surface lightly with icing sugar and roll the marzipan out to a 16cm x 7.5cm rectangle.
  5. Cut out eight stars using a 4 cm star cutter (make a template of one if you don't have a cutter).
  6. Drape one star over each cake.
  7. Then roll out the icing and do the same, but drape the icing in the opposite way to the marzipan on each cake.
  8. Decorate each icing star with six silver balls.
  9. Store the cakes in an airtight box til needed.
