Ever since I overdid it making candy jewels for these babies...
I have been looking for the opportunity to use up the approximately 1 million I still have. Jeweled Easter aggs seemed like a no brainer.
First I dyed the eggs using glitter easter egg dye.
Then I used a dab of royal icing to adhere the jewels to the eggs.
To make the jewels:
I used a corn syrup based recipe. you can make them with isomalt but I had a ton of light corn syrup on hand to I went with that. Excellent comprehensive instructions can be found here at Chica & Joe.
I wouldn't advise eating the jewels off of the artificial easter egg dye but I was really happy with the way they came out.
