Making Spun Sugar Eggs


What a Blast from the past! When I was a kid one of these beautiful spun sugar eggs always held a place of honor in my Easter basket of goodies. Oh those were the days. Your Easter basket was never a last-minute purchase of mass produced plastic toys and tiny little packs of off-brand candy. Mom used to take her time designing those overloaded treasure boxes of delights to the eye and tongue. I was browsing through the web and came across these instructions for making your own Spun Sugar panoramic Eggs complete with a miniature Easter scene inside. They are surprisingly simple to make and can be as simple or lavish as you like depending on your skills as a cake decorator. And with the variety of premade cake decorations available today even those with minimal decorating skills can create stunning sugar eggs to grace this years Easter Baskets.
