I wanted to update my last post because I did a few things differently, with good results.
1. I used apricot jam between the layers, which is much more visually appealing than raspberry. And tastes good, of course. Actually, it was Trader Joe's reduced sugar apricot jam, so you can fool yourself into thinking you're being "healthy" for at least a split second.
2. I just used the 7-ounce container of marzipan from the grocery store, even though the recipe calls for 8 ounces. No discernible difference, cheaper, and easier not to have to measure.
3. This time, the layers baked up perfectly. It reinforces my rule that things are done baking when they're done baking, and not when the recipe says they're done.
Still delicious! And better pictures this time.
