Day 291: Something Beautiful—The Art of Marzipan

Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of the year.

Florence. September 27. I had planned to make food a beauty series in this retrospective of my 20 day in Europe. Gloomy morning skies and an end to my extended vacation (due to the US government furlough) have pushed me to ferret out the beautiful and bright marzipan from the candy store window in Florence. How can food that pretty not taste good?!
