Cut a large sheet of baking parchment and sprinkle it with a tsp of icing sugar. Place your marzipan on it and roll it out to a rectangle that’s the same size as your pastry sheet.

Unroll the puff pastry sheet. Lightly brush it with the melted butter. Place the marzipan sheet on top and lightly press down so it sticks to the pastry.

Drain the fruit and squeeze out some of the moisture. Sprinkle the fruit all over the marzipan evenly. Then roll it up tightly staring from the long edge. Wrap in the baking parchment and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm up (it will make it easier to cut it).

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 200°C Fan. Line a large baking tray (or two) with baking parchment. Take the pastry roll out of the fridge and cut 1cm thick rounds. Place them on baking trays leaving 2 cm gaps in between them.

Bake in the oven for 9-12 minutes until puffed up and starting to brown. Transfer the pinwheels onto a cooling rack to cool down.
