Traditionally made with almonds, this nut-free marzipan recipe is made with semolina and vanilla instead. It's the perfect substitute for sweet bakes, particularly at Christmas and Easter, for those with nut allergies  

  1. In a mixer or by hand mix together all the ingredients, until it comes together. It is quite crumbly, so chill in the fridge for 15-20 mins to firm up before using.
  2. Use to cover the Nut-free Battenburg cake, or Nut-free Christmas cake.
