Panoramic Easter eggs are a keepsake that can be made together as a family or can be made for someone special. They are simple to make, and will last for years if taken care of. These are perfect for your little ones at Easter.
Things You’ll Need:
* Panoramic egg mold
* 2 tbs cornstarch
* 5 lbs granulated sugar
* 2 egg whites
* food coloring
* small bucket of royal icing
* cake decorating shell tip
* ziploc bag or parchment triangle
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Dust your egg molds with cornstarch.
Place sugar in a large bowl, stir to get rid of lumps. Make a well in the center of the sugar and pour in egg whites. Mix and knead with hands for five minutes, until well blended.
Press firmly into mold with the heel of your hand. Scrape off excess sugar with the straight edge of a knife.
Unmold at once and place on baking sheets. This recipe will make you 20 eggs. Pick one side of the egg and hollow out the center about half way.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, until hard. you don’t want the sugar to brown so watch it carefully.
When cool decorate with royal icing, fill a cake decorating bag with icing after you insert your tip. Make sure that you put some kind of design over the two halves of eggs to keep them together. Once the royal icing dries, it is as hard as cement and will last forever unless you smash it.
Some molds come with little designs of chicks and bunnies as shown in the picture. Fill these with sugar as well if you want and remove immediately. Do not hollow. They can be painted with food coloring once they are baked.
*There will be plenty of extra eggs, they are fragile so don’t worry if the first couple break while you are learning to work with them.
*These are a keepsake item, they will last forever if you do not get them wet.
