Instructions for Decorate the Cake Egg Designs
All the designs started out the same. They can be done in actually cake or what I did was just make “shells” out of fondant. If desiring a larger size, you can use the Wilton 3-D egg pan. For that I covered one side of the pan with plastic, rolled out the fondant and allowed to dry overnight on the outside of the pan. The next day, the fondant was carefully removed and placed on the INSIDE of the pan so the underside could dry. I decided to use the medium egg pans instead. It was difficult to get plastic on each compartment so instead I greased the back of the pan with shortening, rolled out the fondant and placed it on the forms. Do one at a time as you will need room in between the shapes to cut the excess. I first cut with a mini pizza wheel and then went back with an exacto knife for more precision. Again , allow to dry overnight and then remove gently and flip to dry in the inside of the pan. The more humid, the thicker the fondant…the longer the dry time. You can also use gum paste if desired.
I made a few white as that gives you more options on decorations but also can marbleize the fondant as I did on one of the eggs or make in a solid color. While the eggs where drying I also cut out the different plagues to use as bases. Most are Jem cutters as well as the strip cutters. These also need to dry overnight and then flipped over to dry the underside. For the scalloped plague, the design was cut out with a tip 12 again for add some extra detail. These can be a solid color or marbleized to your liking.
