Panoramic Sugar Eggs - Gone Geeky!

When I was a kid the most awesome item in the Easter basket was always the panoramic sugar egg. They always looked delicious & beautiful.  I still love them, so this year I decided to try making some using this tutorial.  Of course, me being me, I couldn't just go with the "usual" themes when it came to decorating.  So here are a few of my own designs in all their geeky glory.  

Let's start with the Pac-Man Panoramic Egg:

Yes, that is Pac-Man about to devour a power pellet inside.  And good thing too, since there's a ghost lurking nearby:

I used a red button candy for the power pellet and my trusty favorite, modeling chocolate, to roll out & shape the characters with a knife.  Royal icing added some blue maze details, eyeballs and acts as the glue to attach everything to the sugar.   The outer icing was piped on with a star shaped tip for the scalloped effect.

For Star Wars fans, there's this Yoda Superstar Egg:

Yoda is made from green modeling chocolate with royal icing eyes and all the details are drawn on with a food pen.  A small fondant cutter made the yellow modeling chocolate stars.  I added a bit of blue icing and now it's ready for a Jedi with a sweet tooth. 

It's even stormtrooper approved:

And for something more traditional, here's the Little Duckling Egg:

I used one of the DIY spring candies I made the other day for the interior and nestled him in a bit of blue icing for the "pond":

I colored the outer royal icing mint green this time and added a few flowers with a piping tip for outer accents.  They dry really fast, so within half an hour the eggs are ready to display.

Now that I've gotten the hang of making these, I can't wait to come up with more designs for future Easters!
