In France, for snack time, children often eats “BN biscuits” and the small “mini BN“. It has the same size as an Oreo.
Even if my daughter is quite old (19), I found funny to make such a birthday cake.
Place in the fridge to set.
With a knife, I cut the shapes’ edges to make smooth curves (and so the marzipan won’t crack).
The little falls are the baker’s appointement
Cutting the face shape in marzipan.
See HERE tips how to spread the marzipan and place it on the cake.
For marzipan with an uniform chocolate color, mix the cocoa powder with almond powder and icing sugar before adding the water.
For a granita effect (as HERE), mix the cocoa powder after the marzipan crystallization.
I gently mold my marzipan with a wooden skewer to form BN’s “ears”.
Some marks to accentuate the wink and form the nose.
Et voilà, a giant mini BN !!
