SugarEggs.Com has been a project long in the making, inspired by memories and treasured eggs from many years past.
Panoramic Sugared Egg making is a tradition that has been continued in my family for years! As a young girl, my mother received a Panorama Egg kit as a gift, and has made them every year since. When I was a child, my favorite part of Easter was finding the beautiful egg tucked in my basket. Personalized just for me, it always had a special scene that was absolutely magical inside. As I grew older, my mother shared the joy of creating them with us. Easter wasn't complete without my siblings gathering around a batch of freshly baked sugar egg shells and trying to devise the most intricate scene inside, and icing our names and decorations on the outside. I've had my hand in the craft for as long as I can remember!
The progression from making them as gifts to selling them locally was a natural one. The response has been overwhelming! So many people remember these treasures from their childhood and they are virtually impossible to find. Searching the web brings very few results, and the ones that are available are very unlike the ones I grew up with. It is sad to me that such a wonderful tradition is being lost in this time of pre-packaged Easter baskets and plastic disposable toys..
Each Sugar Egg is a work of art. I take the utmost care and consideration with each individual egg so that it is shaped and decorated to perfection. My goal is to share the fascination and magic I felt as a child peeking into the little window in the egg with others-extra care is spent making sure the inner scene is just right. If you are ordering, you can choose color, style, and composition of your egg, or you can opt to have one designed for you with minimal input.
Our recipe for the sugar shell has been in our family for many years, it is hard and has the consistency (and taste) of a sugar cube. The decorations are made from royal icing, which hardens to a candy texture. These eggs are no different ingredient-wise than the ones made in Victorian times!
