A Mexican/American Tradition around Easter and carnival. These pretty confetti eggs really make any party fun for kids and adults alike! You will need a large bowl for catching the raw eggs; you can save these and use them for cooking, and a clean, sharp knife. Prep time depends on your technique.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Over the bowl, use the knife to cut a small to medium sized hole in the tip of the egg.
- 2Turn the egg over and make a small hole in the opposite side.
- 3Shake egg over the bowl, or blow through the small hole until all of the raw egg yolk and white has emptied out into the bowl.
- 4Repeat with all eggs.
- 5It is okay if the eggs crack or chip a little but try to keep them mostly intact.
- 6Once all eggs have been emptied, rinse with water. Be sure they are clean without any remaining egg white or yolk.
- 7Decorate the shells with paint, egg dye Easter Eggs - Egg Dye, glitter, etc. The more colorful and outrageous, the better!
- 8Once eggs are dry, cut small squares of tissue paper and glue them over the small holes to seal them.
- 9Using a funnel, or small spoon, fill the eggs with confetti or shredded paper through the larger hole.
- 10Once an egg is full, pack a small tissue paper "puff" to plug the larger hole and seal it with glue.
- 11Allow cascarones to dry and store in the egg carton to protect them.
- 12Have fun hunting for and throwing cascarones, or sneaking up behind someone and cracking the cascarone over their head!
