11 Marzipan Cake Recipes We Love
The only thing sweeter than these marzipan cakes are the people you'll share them with.
Upside Down Cake
This Rhubarb and Marzipan Upside Down Cake is one of the most aesthetically pleasing kitchen concoctions we have ever seen. Baker Michelle Lopez notes that you can change out what fruit to use and how much, so you can make the cake your own.
(Not sure about the difference between marzipan, fondant and almond paste? No worries! We can explain.)
Vanilla Butter Cake may seem simple, but adding a marzipan buttercream makes it special (and tastier than any vanilla-flavored baked good). It’s sure to be a hit at any gathering, and you can easily decorate it for a special occasion. Molly Yeh is the mastermind behind this sweet treat and her blog provides extra photos and a video to watch as you embark on your baking adventure.
Chocolate Marzipan Cake
Crumbs and Nibbles is a baking blog that always seems to get recipes right, and this incredible Chocolate Marzipan Cake is no exception. Baker Alaina Chou even breaks down every step so it’s easy to make on your own.
P.S. You might also want to bake chocolate Yule Logs for Christmas!
Cherry Marzipan Streusel Cake
Feeling fruity? Kimberly Killebrew has the answer: Bake a Cherry Marzipan Streusel Cake. Your friends and family may not have had one like it ever before, but we’re sure they’ll be after your secret once you serve up this crumbly treat.
Marzipan Pound Cake
If you were assigned to bring a dessert to a holiday potluck, you’re in luck because Carolyn Jung has crafted an incredibly tasty Cocoa-Marzipan Pound Cake. You’ll love baking just as much as your community will love devouring! The almond topping gives it a little something extra.
Apple Marzipan Cake
Anita Chu highlights a seasonal favorite on her blog Dessert First. It’ll give off pie-vibes but with all the wonderful flavors and textures of an apple cake. You really do get the best of both worlds with this one.
Simple Marzipan Cake
Not sold on marzipan? Vicky Chin of Tiny Sweet Tooth understands. But before you knock it completely, try the cake that won her over. She admits it took her a couple of tries to get it right—but even her “failed” attempts were scrumptious.
Torta di Marzapane
Laura De Vincentis is an amazing Italian blogger and lucky for you, we found the English translation of her standout Marzipan Cake recipe. It’s creamy, moist and you’ll only need 12 ingredients. The chocolate glaze over top is an amazing finishing touch!
If the way to someone’s heart truly is through their stomach, then Neha of Whiskaffair must get a lot of love through her baking blog. This French Battenberg cake looks so pretty that we almost wouldn’t want to eat it. But once you cut into the multi-colored cake it’d be impossible to resist.
