Grate the marzipan or chop it to small cubes and add it to butter cream and mix well.

In other bowl sift the flour and baking powder. In small parts add it to the batter.

From separated egg whites and pinch of salt beat the egg whites until stiff peaks. Slowly add it by hand with scoop to the mixture.
