Playing with Food – Easter eggs and rolled fondant

18 de March de 2010

I wasn’t even thinking of Easter yet, but Xandoca (my chocolatier husband) started with some chocolate egg testing, while I was making some rolled fondant decorations for a cake.

I couldn’t help myself:

Mr. and Mrs. Egg Head, Mr. Potato Head distant cousins

If you wanna make your own chocolate egg shells, there are some good tips here and here, but I think it could be a great idea customize store-bought plain eggs and make it a unique gift.

Some tips:

  • I used rolled fondant for most part of the decorations. Gum paste, candy, sprinkles should do the trick as well.
  • Try to make the decorations first, then put some rubber gloves on to glue them – that will avoid finger marks on the chocolate.
  • To glue the parts, I used candy melts in the same color as the chocolate – I guess royal icing could be used, but I think the candy melts dry a lot faster, making the work easier.
  • Use a small clean brush to apply only a little bit of the “glue” in the decoration, then fix it in the egg.
  • Decorate each half of the egg separately – when everything is dry and fixed, glue the two halves together.
  • To keep the egg in place while drying, make a “nest” with a very clean cloth.
  • If making the decorations freehand is difficult for you, use your cookie cutters! Stars, flowers, hearts, polka dots, letters, they all would look cute decorating the eggs, don’t you think?

Happy Easter!
