Marcipán (“MAR-TSEE-PAN”) is a popular confection in Hungary, and is used widely in cakes. Famous Hungarian marzipan brands include Szabó Marcipán and Szamos Marcipán, which operates a “marzipan museum” in the Danube bend town of Szentendre.

Marzipan is sweetened almond paste which can be covered in chocolate and eaten like candy, used as the middle layer between cakes, or rolled thin and spread over cakes. It is also made into colorful decorations.
