Introduction

Due to nutritional and healing properties of poppy seeds, which I have mentioned before, I was looking for a poppy cake recipe. I was finally inspired with a poppy cake with vanilla butter cream of cookingchanneltv.com. For garnishing, I made marzipan poppy flowers, however, purchased marzipan contained sorbitol sweetener with adverse health effects. Therefore, it is the best to use homemade marzipan.
