Home made hollow sugar eggs decorated with royal icing . . . on a flower cookie.

I have mixed ultrafine sugar and the “Extra Dark Chocolate” icing mixture to make these eggs. It is the same icing used to make lace, but the chocolate kind, not the white one. I followed SugarVeil video tutorial where they show how to make these cast sugar eggs (Pastel colors with the white confectionery icing).

The eggs are filled with sweets and they are not hard to the bite once broken. The texture of the cookie (the base) gives balance to this special treat.

Here’s the video by SugarVeil from where I took inspiration:

I used @Julia M. Usher’s dipping technique to flood the sugar eggs, the one that she uses for globes or rounded cookies. It is explained in her video here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pGQ_clWBxnI

Julia has many projects with cast sugar technique on her You Tube channel. I attached all the links below for reference, and for further inspiration!

Another use for SugarVeil! Nice job! You can also just use tinted water and sugar (ratio of about 1 tbsp water to 1 cup sugar) to make panorama eggs the traditional way. I’ve also used this medium to make decorative molded sugar cubes and large sugar urns and boxes.

Oh @Julia M. Usher! I thought I knew about each video of your YouTube channel, but I don’t!!!!

😱😱😱

I went to watch them and they’re amazing! I added all the links to your projects in my comment above for those like me who got passionate about this technique and would like to have more ideas and mix different techniques and media (3-D contruction, sugar and cookies).

Oh, there was no need to do that - I wasn't fishing for any credit. I just wanted people to know there was another way to do the same thing.

I know, Julia. But every single video has something interesting (and inspiring). I think it is useful to have so many different references in one place. 

Hi Manu!  I have watched all videos you wrote and yes, they are very interesting.  I think I watched them before but at that time I was more interested in decorating cookies.  Now they (of course, yours, too) seem really fun to make and definitely I want to get this egg shaped mold.     Thank you.
