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.
