Pastel Reale or Masapan kon Sharope is an exquisite confection with an old- world sophistication originating from Moorish Medieval Toledo in Spain.
Home made marzipan is delicately handcrafted encasing a fragrant fresh lemon fondant.
These dainty petit fours crowned with a silver ball that have been served at special festivities for centuries conjure such nostalgia for the Rhodeslis of glorious times at community celebrations.
I hope that the next generation of home cooks will embrace this traditional sweet treat and hand down another of our culinary treasures!
