Hi, I was wondering if anyone might be able to share how they would go about making these for easter? I am using the mini egg pan and need to decorate 3 of them for a top of a cake. This cake is for a Polish lady who is turning 80 on Good Friday and her family requested that these eggs be put on the cake. icon_eek.gif

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_923583.html Take a look at these eggs by Kraach, they are from 2007.

Also, I think brushed embroidery could copy the blue and purple eggs really well.

I had thought about trying some cookie designs using the egg designs on

They have a section on egg designs you can click on and get very detailed design instructions.

The designs look pretty intricate -- they may have been stenciled. You could certainly do them with royal icing and a very fine tip (0 or 1).

Wow, those eggs by Kraach are gorgeous - I'm going to have to improve my piping skills VERY quickly!

I was thinking brush embroidery too after I posted this...but wasn't sure the best route.

I think they are just so beautiful and detailed that I think I am feeling a bit overwhelmed!

You can even try doing them with chocolate.

By making the entire eggs out of chocolate or just using it to decorate?

Yeah, if the eggs HAVE to be cake, I would cover (dip) them in colored chocolate/candy melts, then do the decorations in royal icing. You'll need the smallest tips avaliable, and a very steady hand. thumbs_up.gif I've done a tiny bit of that pysanky egg decorating, and boy is it hard! Fun, definitely, but hard.

Not what I wanted to hear! haha I think the 3 eggs that is just for the top of the cake is going to be the most time consuming part!

Haha, I'm sure! icon_rolleyes.gif Wish I could say otherwise, but it's better to know in advance right? So you can prepare, and be sure to CHARGE APPROPRIATELY!! thumbs_up.gif

I don't know if this will help or not, but I just started doing eggs for an easter basket cake I will be doing for my children's school onFriday. I made the egss with rice crispy treats (cocoa crispy treats, because I had a box set from the 90% off halloween sale at Target.) I was trying to figure out how to do it, I thought I had an old egg jello mold laying around, but I couldn't find it. While I was looking, I noticed a bag of plastic eggs from an egg hunt we went to last weekend. I washed the plastic eggs really well, then sprayed them with Pam. I filled each half with RKT, a little over full so they crunched when I put them together, then I plan on using molding chocolate or candy clay to cover them in to make them smooth.

If you don't have a cake egg pan, I thought this might help. It would also make them lighter for the top of the cake, rather than using all chocolate or cake.

HTH!

Ok, I did the eggs. I ended up baking the eggs in my egg pan, covering in mmf and used candy melts to pipe decoration on them. I'm a little embarassed to post a pic because of time restraints I wasn't able to do much detail, so they are not as beautiful as the original eggs I was using for inspiration... icon_redface.gif
