For years I have wanted to make sugar eggs. I remember holding my first sugar egg wondering how they made such a thing and got the little panoramic scene inside. I was four years old and I imagined it was a very difficult task, that idea of difficulty stayed in my mind and I never attempted to make one until I came across instructions on Martha Stewart’s website. I realized then that my four year old self was wrong, at least I was crossing my fingers that I was wrong.
I decided to give regular sugar a whirl in the food processor which gave little to no results. There wasn’t a way for me to get the sugar any finer so I just went ahead and used regular granulated sugar, added my water and my coloring and filled the molds (one at a time) and carefully popped them out onto the underside of a plate (because it’s flat); Martha’s site recommended cardboard, but I was fresh out of it so I used plates instead.
The details of the eggs were not crisp or clean because the sugar grains were a little large, but they worked and I got to try making them. Even though Easter is just a few days away you could easily have these ready to go for your festivities with or without the right ingredients!
