Another great site for how-tos

December 23, 2011

There are some great tutorials on this site, including shaping eggs without molds:

Also, be sure to check out how to dye boiled eggs without food colors. One of these days I’m going to do pink. I even have the red cabbage slowly going soft in the refrigerator. Hmmm, maybe a good holiday weekend project!

If this seems like a crazy amount of work but you get a kick out of cute eggs, check out the egg molds section of my affiliate store (link is up there ^^). Cora is a little sick of them now, but they are adorable.

All methods of shaping eggs require warm eggs that are freshly boiled and go straight from peeling into the mold. To keep the yolks centered, you need to stir the eggs frequently while they boil. This is maybe the most time consuming thing I make in Cora’s lunches (and she rarely eats them), so I’m experimenting with making eggs with just whites and a mold like those Seen on TV thingies. The results have been mixed so far, but once I have it down, I will make a tutorial of my own 🙂
