   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8       oz           Almond paste
    2 1/4   c            Confectioner’s sugar
    1       ea           Egg white -- beaten lightly
   * Blend the almond paste and sugar together. Add
   enough egg white to create the consistency of modeling
   BANANA Color the marzipan light yellow and roll it
   into the banana shape. Dissolve cocoa in a little
   water and, with a small paint brush, streak the fruit
   with brown lines.
   APPLE Color the marzipan light green or green yellow.
   Shape into apple shape and make an impression on top
   with a chopstick. Finish the apple with a brown stem
   and a green leaf (made of marzipan)
   STRAWBERRY Color the marzipan red and shape it into a
   strawberry. Roll the berry in granulated sugar. Make
   the hull with green marzipan.
   ORANGE Make a smooth ball of orange-colored marzipan;
   then press a piece of paper towel against the sides to
   create the texture of orange skin. Push a whole clove
   into the stem end of the orange.
        This recpie makes one full-sized fruit or eight
   miniatures. Using chopsticks or toothpicks help the
   modeling process.  Paste food coloring is the best,
   though liquid works o.k.
