Marzipan babies (or please check Snopes)

A friend forwarded me a email on these marzipan babies.

“Thought you’d be as fascinated with these as I was. These are made with marzipan (almond paste and egg white)……. really unbelievable! While some of the faces may look “crafted” rather than “real”, every detail is amazing, and the rest looks VERY real. And whats more…. you could eat them (not that you would!).”


Hard to believe, huh? That’s because they are not made of marzipan at all. They are actually sculptures made by Camille Allen.

Whenever you get one of these forwards that seem bizarre, you can check it out on this very cool site. It focuses on debunking urban myths and also those really annoying email forwards for fake causes. Then there are those email forwards that threaten you if you don’t forward them… one of my pet peeves. But that’s another story and enough fodder for another post entirely!
