This is a sweet dense little cake with a marzipan filling baked in a shortbread crust. This cake might be a little heavy after a large dinner but is perfect at the reception!
I made this for an elderly Swedish gentlman that I do caretaking for. He loved it and with his background he knows good pastries! He said it was the best!! I personally loved the crust. The almond paste can be a little tricky to locate and expensive, but it really enhances! - 22 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Holy smokes this was a good recipe! I wish the site would correct the spelling as this was a marzipan cake (not mazarin) and I almost didn't find it, but it was well worth the search. - 01 Apr 2013 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
