This post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside.
These photos were taken inside the Marcipan Museum in Szentendre, Hungary. We were on our way to Budapest, the capital city of Hungary, and stopped by this little town which was quite attractive to tourists.
Szentendre is a riverside town in Pest county,Hungary, near the capital city Budapest. It is known for its museums (most notably the Open-Air Ethnographic Museum), galleries, and artists. We came across this Marcipan shop which had some interesting displays inside. Marcipan is a confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal, sometimes augmented with almond oil or extract. It is often made into sweets; common uses are marzipan-filled chocolate and small marcipan imitations of fruits and vegetables. It is also rolled into thin sheets and glazed for icing cakes, primarily birthday and wedding cakes and Christmas cakes. This use is particularly common in England, on large fruitcake. Marzipan (or almond paste) may also be used as a cake ingredient. In some countries, it is shaped into small figures of animals as a traditional treat for New Year’s Day.
Inside this Museum are little cute displays made of Marzipan. They are displayed beautifully. Do you want to eat them?
