Combine all ingredients for the sugar egg- the mixture should feel like sand- it should NOT be too wet. Pack the egg molds really tight- you do not want air and cracks. Level off the top. Invert the molds onto a tray and let them set in the mold. Release the sugar eggs and immediately cut an end off (this will be the part you "view" from) Set for about 30 minutes (touch- if they are too soft do NOT attempt to hallow.) let them set longer until the shell is kinda hard.
Hallow out the middle of the eggs using a spoon. Let rest over night.
Mix the royal icing together and add decorations. We dyed coconut green for grass, found erasers-yeah that was funny, and candy eggs and chicks.
After you're finished used some white royal icing to seal it closed. Add fancy decorations to the outside.
