Who is ready for these adorable Chick Sponge Eggs???
Easter Day is just around the corner and we had these baking in our oven last weekend.
The kids were fascinated by these Chick Eggs...they were simply so adorable and the kids can' wait to help out.
In fact, these Chick Eggs were more suitable for the kids' activities. Mine helped to peel the egg shells and put on the "decorations" for the chicks.
Ain't they Cute???
Well, these didn't last us long for many days...They were gone by the very next day. Nat simply loved these Chick Sponge Eggs!!! She had happily finished the rest of the chick sponge eggs by herself on the second day and none was left for her sisters.
Nat had requested me to make more but I guessed that would have to wait.
Cleaning the egg shells were rather tedious, and my fingers were too huge for the egg shells holes. I had to be extremely careful while removing the inner white lining inside the shells, otherwise the egg shells will crack and it will create a large opening on the egg shells.

You can refer to this post for my previous attempt in the Chick Eggs.
Otherwise, you can use black sesame seeds for the eyes and the little heart shaped candy for the mouth as shown in my picture.
Do remember to remove the white lining from the egg shells, washed them thoroughly. I had also boiled the eggs with some salt for about 10 minutes to sterilized them. Allow the egg shells to dry completely before using them.
