Beautiful Sculptures of Babies Made of Marzipan, a Cake Decorating Substance-Fiction!

 

 

 

Summary of the eRumor:  
A series of pictures of beautifully made sculptures of infants said to be made from marzipan, a combination of ground almonds, sugar, and eggs used to make ornamental shapes for decorative cakes.
The Truth:  
These works of art are not made with marzipan or anything else edible.

They are the creations of artist Camille Allen. We contacted her and she said that the babies are made of Polymer Clay or Resin.

More about her and some of her work can be seen at her website at www.camilleallen.com.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

Thought you'd be as fascinated with these as I was. These are made with marzipan.... really unbelievable! While some of the faces may look "crafted" rather than "real", every detail is amazing, and the rest looks VERY real.

Be blessed and enjoy the talent given one person by God.

Definition of Marzipan: 
A sweet paste made of ground almonds and sugar, often with egg whites or yolks,
used as a layer in cakes or molded into ornamental shapes.
