The almond paste we use for baking in Sweden is a bit different to the ordinary marzipan. It has some more almonds in it. And we use it frequently when we bake. Marzipan has a higher sugar content and I think this is nicer to use for baking. In Sweden I can buy a ready made one, but as I lived abroad a lot this was my saviour. Or just when I don’t have it at home and I get a feeling for baking with almond paste.
