Traditionally given as Easter gifts, panorama or peekaboo sugar eggs are impressive and inexpensive to make. The primary building material is sugar and most of the specialized equipment can be swapped out for basic home tools. Time is what you'll invest the most in this project -- both for creating the eggs and for drying between steps.
Step 1: Ingredients & Equipment
4 cups of granulated sugar
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1 egg white
Food coloring (gel, paste, or liquid)
*This amount will make one six-inch egg, or two three-inch eggs.
Pocket or paring knife
Piping bag and tips or sandwich bags and scissors
Egg-shaped mold which opens horizontally
Note: Meringue powder can be substituted for the egg white. Use one tablespoon of meringue powder to two tablespoons of water; however, be very sparing as you add this mixture. It tends to be wetter than egg white and your sugar egg will take much longer to dry.
