Preparation steps

To decorate: Divide the marzipan into 6 equal portions. Knead a few drops of food colouring into each portion until evenly coloured.

Roll out the green marzipan thinly on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar and cut out 12 leaf shapes using a cookie cutter or a card template.

Roll out 1-2 portions of another colour as before and cut out stocking shapes using a cookie cutter or a card template.
7.
Roll out the remaining coloured marzipan thickly and cut into cubes for the 'parcels'.
