WE had these when I was little. My grandmother made them!
Thank you so much for the wonderfully clear directions!
I made these last year, but to get coloured eggs I used flavoured drink crystals with the sugar, peach, lime and strawberry. The eggs came out a pale pastel colour and they looked great!
My grandmother had made them for us when we were small too, Mine was Yellow and my sisters was Pink and my brothers was Blue, that is why I wanted to make them with colour.
I have been looking for the molds to make these with in all the craft shops around without any luck.
Thank you so much for sharing this with every one.
I'm off to find a mold at Wal-Marts. You're timing couldn't be better.
Oh My Goodness,What a delight .I have just down loaded the sugar egg .I used to get these at Easter from the local Sunday School and have never forgotten how beautiful they were.We were very poor and to have something given which was such a beatiful gift was a memory that will always be with me.I have asked many people about these eggs including the Teacher and no- one else remembers them, just goes to show how we all have different values. Once again many ,many thanks.I am so excited I could burst and I just cant wait for my Grand-children to come.thankyou from Grandma
Hi, I'm in the SF Bay Area and you would think I would be able to find small, inexpensive plastic figurines here. No luck so far. I used to get everything I needed in Phoenix, AZ at ABC cake decorating store. Any suggestions? Does anyone know of an online outlet for the figurines?
I really enjoyed making these eggs for my children when they were young. Each egg was different and they always squeeled with delight. To the best of my recollection....I purchased alot of my little bunnies,chickies etc at Michaels or JoAnne Fabric. Party America also had lots of little scenery type things to add on the inside. This year I will be making sugar eggs for my two grandaughters...
Every year I remember the beautiful panoramic eggs my Dad would give my sister and I at Easter. They came from See's candy. (50+ yrs.ago) I never ate mine and tried to save it but the ants finally found it. I really miss them. I think it is probably too late to make them this year and I'm not good at stuff like this but I might give it a try. If I can't...maybe I can find someone who can. Thx for the directions.
I had these when I was younger also. They're not just for Easter. I'm making them for Xmas. I think I'll make them next year for xmas centerpieces. (baby showers, bridal showers etc. You got me going lol . Thanks for the directions, I couldn't remember them - senior moment.
