Gingerbread Easter eggs


Easter eggs
gingerbread dough
powdered sugar
egg white


You will also need:

  • toothpicks
  • food colorants (black, brown)
  • a piece of polystyrene, covered with a film
  • a brush
  • vodka for dissolving the colorants


  1. Form the dough pieces into balls with one elongated end (egg shape). Note that the dough will grow during baking.
  2. Bake the "eggs". Insert a toothpick from the back. Be sure to cool the finished “eggs” completely. ⠀
  3. Prepare the glaze (whisk the egg white and the powdered sugar). The consistency should be slightly thicker than the icing.
  4. Use a toothpick to lower each "egg" into the glaze. Twist the toothpick, and shake it a little to stack the excess glaze.
  5. Pick a toothpick into the polystyrene. Let the “eggs” dry completely.
  6. Dilute the dyes in vodka. Use a brush to draw black spots on the “eggs”; dry. Spray some brown paint on top. Let the finished dessert dry completely.

NOTE: the splashes will fly in different directions, so you better apply them in a plastic bucket or over the sink.⠀

Bon Appetit!
