Marzipan Babies

Thought you'd be as absorbed with these as I was. These are fabricated with marzipan (almond adhesive and egg white)....... absolutely unbelievable! While some of the faces may attending "crafted" rather than "real", every detail is amazing, and the blow looks VERY real. And whats more.... you could eat them (not that you would!).
