Fun, Fresh and Festive Marzipan Pinecones

These marzipan pinecones are fun, fresh and festive. And they are perfect for decorating my Bûche de Noël.

This is one of the easiest cake decorations I have ever made. And I know I say that about a LOT of my DIY baking projects - but this time it is really true.

  • 1 1/4 cup Almond Flour

  • 1 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar (plus extra as needed)

  • Almond Extract

  • Rose Water (I didn't add any but you really area supposed to!)

  • Sliced Almonds


Mix your almond flour and powdered sugar together. Add one egg white and mix to start forming your dough. Add your almond extract and rose water. Continue to mix, adding a little extra powdered sugar if needed to get to a good doughy consistency. Wrap in wax paper or Saran Wrap until you are ready to use your marzipan. It will stay fresh in the fridge for at least a week. Form small cones with your marzipan and insert sliced almonds, angling them up as you go towards the top of the pinecone. And that’s it! See? That one was really easy!

Et voila! Votre pomme de pin!
