  • Peach-colored almond paste
  • Diluted red food color
  • Toothpick for details


Shape the peaches or apricots by making balls with a point, make an indentation on the top opposite the point, then crease with the sides of a toothpick to make it look like a peach or an apricot. Make the blush on the peach or apricot by painting with a small brush or by using your finger, placing a touch of diluted red color on the peach or apricot, and blending it from light to dark.
