Marzipan fruits

Rachel and I had a productive couple of hours yesterday afternoon with a packet of marzipan and some food colouring. These little fruits are something of a tradition for me ever since I learnt how to make them over 25 years ago on a cookery course. By using cloves and methods for texturing the fruit they do look surprisingly realistic. Roll the strawberries in caster sugar and the oranges and lemons on a small grater to get the pitted look. My intention was to give them for presents, but Rachel has decided we should keep them for ourselves.
