Old Fashioned Sugar Eggs

Aren't these wonderful! I just returned from a class given by the talented Ms Doherty at Naugatuck High School.

These are the beautiful eggs we made. Would you believe the first one was made by a high school age boy! He is training to be a chef~ I'd say he is well on his way! Here's how you can make these too! It's easy! We used the egg molds from the Wilton Panoramic Egg Kit ~ the 5" egg mold.

Sugar Mold Recipe

4 1/2 cups sugar
3 Tablespoons water ~ colored with Wilton Liquid icing color (tip:make water color a few shades darker than you want the egg to be)

Mix sugar and water well. Press firmly in egg mold.Turn mold upside down on to a cookie sheet ~ allowing egg to slide out of mold on to sheet. Bake in oven at 200* for 20 minutes. Allow to cool thoroughly ~ about 20 minutes.

Hold Egg half in palm of hand and gently begin scraping out the center. Leave about a 1/4 inch thick shell. Allow to dry overnight and then use a dremel like tool to create large opening. (see top photo)

Royal Icing

3 tablespoons just whites or meringue powder
6 Tablespoons warm water
1 pound (1 box) of confectioners sugar

to tint icing ~ use Wilton liquid icing color

Beat together for 6-7 minutes
(be sure to cover icing with damp cloth as it will begin to harden right away)

Put your icing in a pastry bag and generously fill egg half. Begin decorating with handmade or store bought chocolate and candy decor. Your icing is your glue. Add a ring of icing around your egg half and attach to opened side. Add another large mound of icing to cardboard circle and "glue " your egg to base. Continue to decorate with royal icing ~ making several different colors if desired. Use coconut colored with green dye as grass.

I would suggest you goggle "sugar eggs" to get more recipes and ideas.

Oh I just love those! I always wanted one when I was little. My big sisters got to make them with their Youth leader one year and I was so wishing I was big then to do it with them. Then we moved and I never did get to. They are so fun and remind me of the fun Easter things I did when I was little. Thanks!
