You will need:
gel food coloring
  1. Take a piece of marzipan and poke a hole in the center.
  2. Add a drop of color and start kneading it together.
  3. Knead until you have the color and marbling you want. If you want a solid color just keep kneading until it’s solid.
  4. Press into a mold and trim with a knife.
