Sugar Easter Eggs

This post first appeared on my other blog in 2013, but since I no longer maintain that one, I'm reposting some of my favorites here!

When I was growing up, one of my favorite Easter decorations was my mom’s pink sugar egg. 

It was so pretty and delicate!
I’ve sometimes seen fake sugar eggs available commercially, but they’re usually made of Styrofoam, and just not the same.

So this year, I decided to make my own sugar eggs!

Aren’t they so pretty?  They also remind me of a scene in my favorite Easter book that I remember my mom reading to me when I was little: The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes! 

I am so happy to have my own sugar eggs to display for years to come!

I used this tutorial to make the sugar eggs.  I found my panoramic egg mold on amazon.  I used this royal icing recipe, and I found the sweet little birds nests, eggs, and baskets atMichaels.
