Status: Not Marzipan
I'm a big fan of Marzipan. In fact, I've made several pilgrimages to Lübeck, home of Niederegger
, makers of the best marzipan in the world (in my opinion). So I was intrigued by these pictures of tiny babies supposedly made out of marzipan. I don't see why one couldn't make lifelike dolls out of marzipan, but that's not the case with these dolls. They're actually made by the artist Camille Allen
out of polymer clay or resin, and they're not edible. Still, in the past it was apparently possible to buy jelly babies, as well as chocolate babies
. So why not marzipan babies? (via Strong Chemistry
My then-wife was VERY pissed at me for contributing to an anti-abortion group. Hey, I just wanted the little dolls!
And Niederegger's is definitely the best in the world. I once visited their factory in Lubeck. The Niederegger marzipan is also sold in other cities of northern Germany, though.
I would probably buy the marzipan babies for the shock factor of eating such realistic looking ones in front of people....
Just walk down the street, munching away on its head..
"... "sacrificing" the pig by cutting it's head off, and saying "kill the piggy". I guess I have a slightly sick sense of humour."
I want to know what the hair is made out of, before I pop one of those babies in my mouth.
They're made out of polymer resin (plastic), not marzipan!

That leaves open the question of why somebody would want to make such a thing, of course.
I got the pictures by mail from a friend in USA, she wrote they were made of marzipan, I then searched the web and foudn out they were nbot, but they are cute I think
Please get back to me as soon as possible. I would really like to purchase them.
Not to worry. If they catch on, I'm sure some cheap knock-offs will appear before long. Coming soon to a dollar store near you ...
Thank you, and have a nice day.
Thankyou thankyou John Wilson and Cadbury.
Shoot me now.
Did anyone else have this reaction or does everyone want to own one of these things?
