A Marzipan Is A Cookie/Nut Bar Thing. . . .

mar·zi·pan    ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (märz-pn, märts-pän)

"A confection made of ground almonds or almond paste, egg whites, and sugar, often molded into decorative shapes."

Did anyone else know that?

I am looking through the Guiness Book of World Records 2005(which I found abandoned in a resident's room last night during room checks), and I saw a listing for the Largest Marzipan Confection! At first Glance I saw Largest Marzipan Collection and thought it was to do with homestar (maybe someone has like 200 Marzi figuringes *shrugs*). So then I looked up a maripan and apparently it's some sort of cookie, or nut bar thing. interesting
