Cakes of Interest: Easter Egg Cakes

When I was a child, my mom and I used to boil eggs and dye the shells in gorgeous pastel colors. I remember the teal, sky blue, and rose pink shells the most. I’d eat them for breakfast and have chocolate eggs later on as a treat.

Fast forward a few decades, and I find myself creating egg shaped cakes for Easter using the same colors from my childhood. It was a struggle making dozens, but I love the assortment of colors that emerged during this holiday rush. They brought me back to those days of soaking eggs in colored water.

The eggs themselves are made out of either chocolate or vanilla cake. They are then base iced in assorted pastel dyed buttercream.

The vast majority of the eggs were iced in a solid color and flecked with airbrush color to emulate robins’ eggs. Others were airbrushed for a gradient effect.

I piped either scrolls or flowers onto other eggs and created a “nest border” using a grass tip. Cupcake picks and little Easter decorations were placed around each cake to spruce them up.

What do you think? Tacky or fancy? 😂😅
