First design

Marzipan was not named until "She Loves Me!" 1999 Marshmallow's Last Stand; She Loves Me!; Old Characters Page

Second design

2000 Character Cards; Dancin' Bubs; The Reddest Radish; Yearbook Character Page (in photo) Her look has become more refined, with clean vector shapes rather than hand-drawn lines. Her eyes have the appearance of black circles with white highlights rather than simple black-outlined circles. Her dress has a more refined "bell" shape curving backwards, and her ponytail has more of a curl. Her shading has been adjusted, with some shadows being replaced with gradients; colors have been adjusted as well, with a pinker skin tone, warmer hair, and much darker and more saturated purple dress.
Third design

May 2000 (or earlier) Theme Song Video; Homestarloween Party; A Holiday Greeting; The Luau; Audition with Marzipan; Yearbook Character Page; A Jorb Well Done; The House That Gave Sucky Treats; Why Come Only One Girl?

2022 Costume Pack Now Available

Marzipan's design is more loose and cartoony. Her eyes are now unfilled black ovals, with the left eye being noticeably larger, and her mouth is shaped slightly differently and placed slightly lower. Her dress and hair no longer have gradients. Her skin tone is a more natural flesh tone than the brighter pink, and her purple clothes are warmer and less saturated. She is now drawn with thinner, colored outlines.
Fourth design

This is the current design. 2001 Toons from The Best Decemberween Ever; various Strong Bad Emails starting with helium; Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 10.2 Her neck is shorter and thinner, her eyes are smaller, her dress and hairtie are darker, she has more advanced shading and a glossier forehead. Her dress is bluer, her hair has some highlights, and the curl at the end of her hair is more rounded out. Her mouth has a more gradual and realistic curve and animates more smoothly than before (although sometimes it does revert to the old style, especially during holiday toons). The bells on her dress are much larger and are a lighter shade of gold. Her dress is smaller and once again has its gradient at the back while her hairtie is larger, her head shape is more rounded, and her outline is thicker. Her right eye is now the larger of the two.
