For the icing

Make the marzipan: mix the almonds and sugars until well combined. Add the egg and almond essence and mix to a stiff paste, using your hands to press the mixture together. Knead the marzipan briefly on a surface dusted with icing sugar, then roll out to a thickness of about 1cm.
Line a baking sheet with baking parchment, then carefully set marzipan on top. Leave to set for 1 hr. Beat royal icing and lemon juice together, then spread evenly over the marzipan. Leave to dry overnight.
Cut the iced marzipan with small cutters and press a piece of crystallised fruit into the centre of each. Pack into boxes interleaved with baking parchment.
You can use any shape cutter for these marzipan treats. Layer them up with baking parchment.
