Have you ever made almond paste icing, or do you just use marzipan?

I was talking with my mother in law yesterday about a cake she's baked for a christening, and she's working on her icings now. Normally I would just buy a block of marzipan and put that onto the fruit cake before applying the royal or fondant icing. My mother in law is making her own almond paste (marzipan) icing, and I think that's a lot more trouble than a simple block of marzipan. I can't say I've ever noticed the difference even when people tell me they've made their own almond paste, and I wonder if anyone here makes their own, or uses the block stuff?

I do like the taste of almond paste icing but unfortunately i've never tried to make it on my own...however it's one of my mom's favorite icing ...so i know it's a must this Christmas that's exactly what will be adorning her fruit cakes.

I've never tried making my own marzipan, but now that you say it's not much different from the packaged kind, I'll probably just not bother trying to do the homemade version.
