GLITTER EASTER EGGS

Makes 6

 

¼ cup icing sugar, sifted

1 tbsp hot water

6 white candy-coated chocolate Easter eggs

Edible glitter, for rolling

 

Prepare the icing by mixing the icing sugar and water together to form a thin paste. Roll the eggs in the icing, and then coat them in the edible glitter. Allow them to dry for at least 1 hour.

6 white candy-coated chocolate Easter eggs

Decorate the eggs by drawing on various patterns using the edible food markers.

CUTE ANIMAL EASTER EGGS

Makes 6

 

Pink-, yellow- and blue-coloured fondant

6 white candy-coated chocolate Easter eggs

Black edible food marker or black food colouring

 

To make the baby chick, shape two small balls of yellow fondant into teardrop shapes to form the feet, a small triangle to form the beak and cut out a strip with a zig-zagged edge to form the chick’s comb.

 

To make the pig, shape two small balls of pink fondant into teardrop shapes to form the feet, a small flat ball to form his nose and two small balls to make his ears.

 

To make the bunny, shape two small balls of blue fondant into teardrop shapes to form the feet, a small flat ball to form his nose and two large balls to form the ears.

 

Don’t feel limited by the animals we chose – let your imagination run wild!

 

Once your animal’s fondant pieces have been done, use a little water to stick them onto the white eggs and allow them to dry. Draw or paint on the eyes using the marker or food colouring.

 

TIP: Coloured fondant can be found in the baking aisle; alternatively, colour your own white fondant using food colouring.
