*giggle* Cane sugar is pretty much the only processed sugar period for 
Europe. :)

Me, I'd suggest _Banquetting Stuffe_ even though a good deal of it is 
post-period, just to revel in.

Moving past marzipan, your next option is sugar plate. Marzipan and 
sugar plate-- the two major confectionary forms of our period. :)
