Marzipan Modelling with Alan Shipman

Love it or hate it, marzipan is a fantastic material for modelling and sculpting.

Favoured by professional awarded patisserie chef, Alan Shipman, Lakefield students received an amazing master class and discovered that marzipan is about to have a big resurgence.

Alan share his marzipan secrets in a live marzipan modelling master class. The class began with a quick introduction. Then, the students learnt the basic principles and skills of successful modelling and Mr Shipman explained how to colour the marzipan & fondant to get the required result.

The students were shown how to use a selection of modelling tools to add original details to their work. They covered a few different spring flowers and modelling faces and animals.
