Also called "Panorama" eggs

The little sceneries inside the
eggs are so cute. This was a very traditional Easter decoration to make
in years past. The art has been all but lost. Kids are so facinated by
the tiny scenes. MAKE YOUR CHILD'S EASTER A SPECIAL TRADITION! This is
one of the easiest projects you could do. It takes no skill. Of course
you can make fancier eggs as your cake decorating abilities progress, but
it is not necassary at all. ROUND molds are also available and perfect
for making Christmas ornaments too.
CAKE IDEAS above - for using sugar
decorations you can make...just think of the possibilities!
Some items may no longer be available for purchase.
Many are by Wilton and they don't seem to keep stocked even for a year.
There will be substitutes though, in most cases.
Candy molds used for sugar cannot be used for chocolate after using them
for sugar...sugar scratches the mold. Scratches will not harm the mold
for use with sugar multiple times.
Place the sugar in a large bowl. Color
as desired. Add water. Don’t be afraid to add a few drops more if it doesn’t
hold together, but don’t get it "wet."
1 cup Granulated sugar
2 teas Water
Egg Mold (any candy mold of your choice)
Food coloring to tint sugar
NOTE: The amount of sugar mixture
will vary with the size of the mold of course.
Pack this mixture into
the mold and immediately invert it onto a square piece of card board not
too much larger than your mold.
For 3-D (2-sided) molds,
fill both sides, as above. Place molds on a cookie sheet. Bake at 200°
for about 10 minutes (for a small egg mold), up to 20 minutes for a very
large one). The "idea" is to have a nice thin shell, so over-baking just
results in a thicker shell. You must experiment a little. All ovens are
a bit different too, so yours may require a minute or two more or less
than my oven.
Cool for a few minutes
ONLY. Hold the baked sugar piece in your hand and carefully, use a spoon
to scoop out all the loose sugar. Invert so the inside can dry. Dry pieces
is just one way to make the shell harden faster. You coukld also do it
this way: Make and turn out as above. Let stand at room temperature overnight.
The shell should be hard enough that you can now scoop out the insides
I MADE THE EGG
BELOW IN THE ‘Egg’ pan also. Pan available HERE
This egg made in the egg pan wasn't
all that difficult either.
I tried some of the tips I'd heard
Like adding egg white to my recipe,
etc. This made the sugar stick in the pan.
So I used the recipe as above.
I used color flow to pipe all kinds
of cute bunnies in different positions and a big cross for inside made
of royal icing.
I even piped a blue bird sitting
on the cross.
I topped my egg with a cluster of
gumpaste dogwood and a bunny peaking out from between the flowers.
Oh yes, and I used the part I had
carved out for the peep hole to make shutters! I perched a bunny peaking
inside, at the edge of the window.
See pan pictured below
General directions for any sugar
TO ASSEMBLE: First, use an exacto
knife to hollow out "peak" windows in top and bottom halves. You can make
a pattern for this so both halves are the same. Also, be sure that both
are hollowed out on the SAME side! Place a tiny scenery in bottom half.
You can use tip 233 royal icing "grass" and set edible or non-edible items
into it. Test to see that top half will still fit, that items aren’t too
tall. Add royal icing around edge of bottom half (the same color as your
egg) and place the top half on. Decorate with royal icing as desired.
NOTE: Sugar mold items can be used
in your cake decorating too. A small sugar-mold basket makes a nice base
for adding stems and flowers for a woman’s cake. Fancy sugar cubes make
an impressive addition for special parties, etc..
TIP: Try our ROYAL ICING MIX for
fast results! Or see recipe in this recipe book.

I molded an egg in this pan shown
above. 3-D EGG PAN HERE
TIP: When making the sugar egg using
this pan, don't dust it cornstarch or anything.
Just be sure its good and dry. I
had to do 2-3 tries before I got it just right.

the cost you have involved in making them, in order to set a fair price.
For the decorations, I add our tiny
icing figures set in icing grass (tip #233), sprinkle wild
flowers on the grass.
I add a few of our icing
flowers on top of each.

They cost very little to make but are time consuming.
The best part of it is - you can
make these months ahead.

Below is an article I received with
an order....isn't this just so sweet! Bet they are a wonderful family.
They keep traditions alive! Makes for much happiness I'm sure. Dolores
My mother bought a sugar egg for
me when I was a little girl (I'm 32 now) and I still have it
in my hutch. I didn't even know
my daughter had ever paid attention to it until I read her
Easter essay from school. She said,
"more than anything, she wanted an egg like her mom has,
because it's so special." She's
6, and you know.. .I have to do this. I looked for three hours
on the internet til I found your
store. Could you please deliver all three eggs before Easter
(I have two boys also)? If that's
a problem, please call or email and I will pay extra to have
it delivered. Thanks again. This
will make Alexandra so very happy!
