Marzipan or marchpane as it was known in Lyra's world was a sweet almond paste. Mary Malone told Will Parry and Lyra Silvertongue about it when she talked about her first lover, Tim, who had placed some in her mouth sprouting their relationship. Mary remembered this moment when her second lover, an Italian man called Alfredo Montale, flirted with her. Soon after hearing this, Lyra and Will found that they had feelings for each other.
