    Oh wow! This sounds like a very decadent and luxurious marzipan which you know I love :) But one question dear, when you put aside the cream and milk powder mixture overnight, would that be in the fridge or outside and the same question for when you have to leave it aside for 12 - 15 hours after cooking - in the fridge or outside?
