    Cherries Jubilee is an iconic, festive dessert created for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the late 1800s.

    Marzipan Pigs

    Marzipan is a beloved European confection and can be easily formed into different shapes, including pigs. 

    These adorable treats can be given to friends and family to wish them a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year. They are typically made of ground almonds and sugar with food coloring or cacao powder for additional color or texture options.

    To create a marzipan pig, start by cutting about a thumb-sized piece from your marzipan mass and working in some pink food coloring with your fingers. You may also tint all or part of it if desired.

    A pig body can be created by flattening one of the larger balls and shaping it into a pig, adding discs for facial features, ears, snout, and tail. Roll a thin sausage-shaped marzipan into its form to form its tail before sticking it on where its line connects to the belly.

    Decorate the pigs using cocoa or black food coloring pens for their eyes, and store them in an airtight container until ready to serve them – they should last about a week! When serving time comes around, simply remove the wax paper, and you are all set!
