Marzipan Day celebrates the sweet stuff
that in it’s purest form is a mix of finely ground almonds
with sugar or honey.
🍯
This form lends itself well for being formed into many shapes
to closely resemble anything that it is supposed to represent.

Marzipan shaped as pigs is a very popular treat
in December or Easter celebrations.
🐖

Marzipan in the end of December is often given as “lucky pigs”.
Another December tradition is a huge marzipan sold in pieces,
to substitute the “festive” slaughter of a real pig.

Or also because pigs just look cute and pink is a very sweet color.
Other popular shapes are fruit, eggs, potatoes, etc.
Lately marzipan has been made to resemble many types
of food to give as joke-candy.
