Think of this crafts project as a modern take on the Victorian era’s ornate panorama sugar eggs. The palette of earthy pastels -- created with drops of ordinary food coloring -- is sweet but not cloying, and the eggs can be left solid (as decorations) or hollowed out to become containers for treats.
- Ultrafine (“bar”) sugar, or light-brown sugar
