To Cover a Cake with Almond Paste
I've made a fair few cakes in my time for special occasions. But I've never achieved the results that I do with my Kenwood Major Kitchen Machine.
Making your own Almond Paste tastes so much better than shop bought versions. And when using my kitchen machine to make Almond Paste I get such a silky smooth consistency. It really does make all the difference.
I wouldn't be without it.
I can only agree with the previous reviewer, that the results are fantastic.
In Denmark, where I live, we have a possibility of buying pasteurized eggs, thus eliminating the danger of "bad eggs". (so we can have our cake and eat it!).
