We perceive a beautiful word "thermostats" as something fabulously wonderful and unattainable. Supposedly, sometime in the Golden age was all and even marzipan! And saying "he's only roasted marzipan and not enough" clearly means that some "rich kid" what is missing is what there is no white light. This treat can work wonders in a dream, inspired by OLE Lukoie, and reality. I read your child a Christmas tale about the brave Hoffmann's Marie Stahlbaum, who, in defending the Nutcracker from the seven-headed mouse king, fed the rodent of its sugar dolls and (gasp!) the whole marzipan. There is Candy meadow, Almond and raisin gate, Orange Creek, Lemonade river, lake Almond milk, Gingerbread village, Cucuta grove and, of course, Confitebor. After winning the grateful Prince showed Mari his Kingdom. "Here we are in Marzipan castle," said the Nutcracker". "Mom! What is marzipan?" - asked my daughter. I got to thinking. How do you explain that? And I decided not to tell but show. After all, to make the marzipan easier. And this is a natural and very useful for children sweet: nuts and a bit of high quality sugar. Now my children can proudly say: "My mom knows how to make fabulous marzipan the Christmas tree!""......if only you have eyes, you will see sparkling everywhere zakatnye groves, transparent marzipan castles – in short, all sorts of miracles and wonders".
