Aren't they cute?! They turned out so good. I got the decorating idea from FN. For the egg cutouts I used Airheads! I cut one of the of Airheads in half. Then shaped each half into an oval. Your hands are perfect for this job. The heat from your hands helps flatten and mold it. (I tried a rolling pin before that and it didn't work quite as well.) Then I used a paring knife to cut the eggs into shape. If you have time, place the egg cutouts on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and stick it in the fridge for a little bit - to help the eggs harden back up. I needed to get to bed and didn't do that, so I came back downstairs this morning to find some of the edges pointing down a little. Plus it's because my house is so hot right now with no AC on. :P They are still cute though! I thought about melting some white chocolate and letting that harden and then cutting out egg shapes that way instead, but I didn't have time. I love how cute they turned out and hope everyone enjoys them. Happy Easter!
