Roll the mixture into a round ½" thick. Make a flat strip from marzipan and put in the middle of round. Leave about 1 ½" on each side free of marzipan. Fold part of the round closest to you over the marzipan. Fold 1 1/2" sides to the middle. Fold the rest of the round towards you in such a way that the seam is on top. Make sure that all folded edges adhere to each other. Squeeze the whole loaf a bit to look like bread.
