I thought Spring arrived yesterday but today I awoke to winter.... or lets call a spring storm arrived.
I loved these as a kid and I enjoy making them every few years for my Easter Table...
I tossed mine out last year because they do get old and break down and then it's time to make new ones...So here is the recipe to begin with
4 cups of sugar
3 T. Water ( food coloring in water) optional...I went with Green since I'm going green this March.
Mix until mixture becomes packable, no lumps like a sand castle mixture. Add the water slowly as you do not want the sugar to wet or you will have collapsing eggs, and we certainly don't want that.
They will dry and harden and then we will frost and decorate them. If you do by chance have an egg that collapses just throw the sugar back in and repack and try again. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries but you'll get it. Check back with me in a few weeks for the rest of the story.... They are so fun and cute to make I hope you'll give it a try...
Oh Yea and be on the look out for a cute mini chick or a cross or something to go in the window?
