    Do you mean baked items that incorporate marzipan, or actual marzipan decorations for pastries?

      I remember marzipan decorations that were done like veggies, fruit etc., haven't seen any lately.

      The Swedish Bakery in Poway uses marzapan in just about all their pasteries. They have a new location somewhere further west in the Carmel Valley area, but more baked goods in Poway. http://www.swedishroyalbakery.com/

        Opera Patisserie makes an almond croissant filled with a house made marzipan.

        A *really* good almond croissant...

          Cardamon Bakery on 30th and Upas, 2977 Upas Street, San Diego - (619) 546-5609, has a wonderful croisant that is stuffed with a marzapan filling. It is very good.
