Marizpan Babies Not Made of Marzipan! 

Published March 21, 2008 at 12:53 p.m.

Ever heard of the woman who makes little baby sculptures out of marzipan? It's not true! They're made out of clay.

Food Editor Suzanne Podhaizer blogged about this urban legend the other day. Fascinating.

Suzanne writes:

Last week, a co-worker forwarded me an email that contained photos of tiny, naked babies supposedly modeled out of marzipan...

The delicate pink babes shown in the email aren't actually made out of ground up nuts. They are, in fact, sculpted from polymer clay by artist Camille Allen.  Allen's website assures visitors "If you've seen the "The Smell of Rain" or "Marzipan Babies" ( Or "Sugar Babies") email, you have probably seen some images taken from this website [like the one at right]. However those pictures are really of sculptures created out of clay by Camille Allen." The page further notes: "They are not real, premature babies."

This photo reminds me of Jeffersonville artist Jennifer Stocks-Dearborn and her "creepy naked babies."

One or more images has been removed from this article. For further information, contact web@sevendaysvt.com.
