Is Marzipan Almond Paste with more sugar added ? Is Almond paste used for baking and Marzipan used for confections ? Which would be used as a layer in a cake ? I feel like the terms are being used interchangeably in recipes.

yes marzipan is almond paste which is kneaded with up to 50% fondant , real fondant not the rolling kind.
neither are recommended as a layer in a cake, way too heavy.

I was trying to find out if after baking lemon pound cake and pouring lemon syrup on it and invert the cake , can you also add a frosting? I know this is not related to your topic but just made my account and couldn’t figure out how to ask that question.
can you help me ?
