Tal Kallai is a gay man who does drag, playing a coke-dealing and fast-talking transgender woman in ‘marzipan Flowers.’
Other versions are coated in marzipan, or dusted in powder sugar.
marzipan Flowers tells the story of Hadas Regal, a 48-year-old woman living on a kibbutz in southern Israel.
These pricey objects with their eye-popping profit margins were gussied up and served up like marzipan sweets.
The tasteless bread was transformed into a sweet cake that included ingredients, such as dried fruit and marzipan.
For when we were in the street Father asked me: Why did Hella say that about marzipan?
Roll out the marzipan an inch thick and cut into rounds or squares.
So it was from the burnt almonds and the two sticks of marzipan.
Careering busily about the kitchen were little pigs made of marzipan.
He bought her marzipan and sweet drinks and, when the hour came to go home, he escorted her through the village.
1901 (in modern use; earlier march payne, late 15c., from French or Dutch), from German Marzipan, from Italian marzapane "candy box," from Medieval Latin matapanus "small box," earlier, "coin bearing image of seated Christ" (altered in Italian by folk etymology as though from Latin Marci panis "bread of Mark"), of uncertain origin. One suggestion is that this is from Arabic mawthaban "king who sits still." Nobody seems to quite accept this, but nobody has a better idea. The Medieval Latin word also is the source of Spanish marzapan, French massepain.
