Piped Icing sugar easter eggs

mrs_murphy, Feb 27, 3:29am
Hi all does anyone out there remember these! I had these 20+ years ago as a kid and I would really like to make them but a brief search of teh interwebs hasn't yielded the result I'm looking for. If memory serves me correctly the eggs I remember were hollow made from what I think is piped coloured icing sugar paste usually two halved 'glued' together with white icing. If anyone out there can help with a recipe I would be very grateful. T.I.A.

I remember them, they were sugar crystals in a mould then iced. Not sure if anyone does them now.

I had one for years in the china cabinet, it had a little gift inside it. It was made of royal icing and I would say piped onto a mould and then joined together, it was wrapped in cellophane. Google how to make royal icing.
