Making Sugar Eggs Without the Right Ingredients

Making sugar eggs even without the right ingredients is easy and you might even have everything you need in your house right now.

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!

    The sugar eggs are so different and i love different! I like the way you put them in the pretty tea cups. I wonder if you make tea, you can add the sugar eggs to the tea or maybe it be too sweet! Love it

    I would never have thought to try them although I remember wondering too how they got those little scenes in there. Super job you did – I know mine would not have turned out like that!

    Okay maybe I’ve been living under a rock but I have never heard of Sugar Eggs. They sound beautiful? And I’m sure your batch was delicious.
