Sugar Easter Eggs

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?

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.


  1. Thanks, Amy! My mom had a couple sugar eggs my grandma made, and they, too, were my very favorite Easter decorations. Now I can try to make my own! :)
