Panoramic Sugar Easter Eggs

At Easter, when I was a little girl, I would get a panoramic Easter egg made of sugar in my Easter basket. They were so beautiful!

So, I was thrilled when Miss Sue, from my home town, wanted to come and teach me how to make them. She has been making panoramic eggs for 30 years. She has passed the tradition along to her daughter-in-law, my friend, Debbie, who helped with the lesson.
Debbie & Miss Sue

I invited a few friends over and we had so much fun making eggs.
We were all a little nervous thinking it would be hard, but it wasn't!  Of all the times I would forget to take pictures...this is one of the worst!!! I completely forgot until we were almost finished!
Oh well...I guess we know what one of the Easter tutorials will be next year (if I can remember to take pictures then)!

Anyway, Miss Sue and Debbie made the sugar molds ahead of time so all we had to do was decorate them. 
We added our objects to the inside to create our scene then put the eggs together and decorated the outside.

  Here, Tina is piping icing around the window.

 Barbara adds the finishing touches to her egg.

 Cindy adds pretties to the top.

And the reveal!
All of our eggs turned out so differently.
And all so beautiful!!!



Look how pretty the tops are...




Each egg has a different scene inside...




  The eggs can be stored and used year after year.
Miss Sue has some she made 20 years ago!!!
 

Thank you Miss Sue and Debbie for a fun day and for helping me renew a wonderful memory!

  3. These panoramic Easter eggs are gorgeous! I remember seeing these as a kid, however I never actually got one:( My daughter would love this, but I don't think she would want to eat it, she would want to keep it forever (smiles)! Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog, I'm so glad you stopped by!

    Wishing you a Happy Easter,

  10. Oh, this takes me back. My sister used to make these eggs for me every Easter, staying up after I'd gone to bed so she could surprise me. I never realized how much work they required. Now I need to send her an email thanking her!

    If you haven't already done so, please come join my How-To Tuesday link party. It would be great to have you join!

  13. I loved these eggs too, but I have never seen any with the tops decorated as beautifully as these. I just saw another site where the recipe was given for the sugar form. If I ever made them I'd come back here for finishing inspiration! Thanks!

    Beautiful!
    My mother made these for us each Easter, too! My sister and I were just talking about them this Easter! What my mom did was to print pictures of us, cut them out and add them into the scenes!
    Do you have the recipe for the sugar eggs and the icing?
