As decor at will:


Heat honey and sugar until sugar is dissolved, then let cool again. Beat eggs with sugar until light and fluffy and add 100 ml of water and all other ingredients to form a medium-firm, smooth dough and work it well. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 3-4 mm. Cut out the hearts with a pre-made template or cookie cutter. Before baking, decorate as desired with halved white almonds, toasted hazelnuts and candied fruit. Dust the baking sheet with flour and place the hearts on it. Bake in the preheated oven at 180 °C for about 15 minutes. While still hot, glaze (brush) with gum arabic. After cooling, cover with sugar or marzipan figures as desired. Finish decorating or labeling with colored egg white spray icing.
