Marzipan Carrot

I made these marzipan carrot to decorate Vance's birthday cake. I made a carrot cake for his birthday. This is my first time handling marzipan. I quickly learned that marzipan can get quite sticky. Have some confectioners sugar on hand. You can roll sticky marzipan on confectioners sugar to make it less sticky.

1 tube marzipan
Orange food coloring (or mix yellow with red)

Combine marzipan with food coloring until desired color is achieved. Shape into a carrot. Snip a small sprig of parsley (leaves and stem). Stick the stem on top of the marzipan carrot. Let the marzipan carrot chill inside the refrigerator until set.
