Sugar Easter Egg Decorations


How about a little change up to your Easter baskets this year?

Sure coloring real Eggs is fun, but making Sugar Easter Egg Decorations is a blast!

And they don’t smell bad after a week sitting in your basket! LOL

These sugar Easter egg decorations are great for a beautiful centerpiece for your buffet table or even as decor on your Easter cakes.

Technically they are all edible, however they are also ALL SUGAR so I’m not so sure anyone wants to take a bite out of one of these!?

But hey~ to each~ his own!

You can certainly chisel off pieces to add to your coffee or tea, but I think they are best just left as a stunning addition to the Easter baskets!.

You can make them in all the colors of the rainbow and get creative with all types of piped flower decor and filigree patterns.

All you need is some granulated sugar and a recipe of Royal Icing and a day of fun!

The only special requirements would be the mold to shape the sugar eggs and you can use this one here that I use in the video or simply pack the sugar into plastic eggs from the dollar store!

Sugar Easter Egg Decorations
Serves: 12 eggs
  • Granulated Sugar 2 cups (400g)
  • Water as needed
  • 1 Recipe Royal Icing
  1. Add desired food coloring and a teaspoon of water at a time to the granulated sugar to make the consistency of damp sand that packs tightly when you squeeze a fistful of it.
  2. If it is too loose and falls apart, add a few more drops of water.
  3. If it is too wet the sugar will dissolve, so be careful not to add too much at first.

  1. Hi Greta, these eggs look like great fun to do with my daughter. Is there is a video? If not, if I decided to use the plastic eggs from the dollar store, how long should I allow the egg to set before unmolding? Is it easier to just use the chocolate egg mold? Thanks Greta!
