When I was little, I LOVED my mom's sugar egg collection. There's something so special about sugar eggs with their delicate piping and sweet scenes inside.

We tried to capture that same feeling in today's cake design, and I think we came close ;0) I hope that you enjoy the tutorial!

Materials for Sugar Egg Cake

We used four 6" round cake layers with two 22g. rice cereal treat squares shaped into the rounded top. (You could use scrap cake if you would rather to create the top, but cereal treats were simpler for us!)

White Chocolate Ganache (simple spreadable recipe--a 3:1 ratio of chocolate to cream. 680g white choc chips to 227g heavy cream) We used Nestle white chocolate chips.
Fluffy Vanilla Buttercream (or your buttercream of choice. I prefer a crusting buttercream so that I can use the Viva paper towel method of smoothing.)
Viva Paper Towels, or a paper towel/napkin that has no quilting (if using the Viva method of smoothing buttercream.)
2 cardboard cake circles- one for the base and another halfway up.
5 bubble tea straws or your supports of choice (4 for the bottom tier, 1 for the top (to support the cereal treat)
Coloring gels- Wilton Rose, Wilton Leaf Green, Americolor Lemon Yellow
Piping Tips: Wilton 3, 21, 104, 125
White Fondant- small amount for bunny (you could also pipe with buttercream if you'd rather)Sugar Egg Cake Video Tutorial by! The perfect cake for Easter!



As we demonstrate in the video, the cake cardboard that is placed within the cake for support has a piece removed to allow for the carving that will come later for the interior scene of the egg.

After carving away the cake (using our oval cutter as a guide), The opening was approx. 3 inches long, 2.5 inches wide, and 1 inch deep.

This can vary of course in length & width, depending on your desired look, but I wouldn't recommend a depth of much more than 1 inch of cake.

Enjoy the Video!

  1. Would it be possible to use the Wilton Doll Dress cake pan to make this egg shaped cake? I was thinking of using it twice to bake two cakes and then cutting part of the thinner top off one of them and let that serve as the bottom of the egg. Thanks.

    1. Hi Rachel! I think that could work for a larger version. The wonder mold pan is 8 inches at its widest point-- so you could even use 8 inch cake layers at the bottom and carve if you don't want to make two. Whatever sounds the easiest ;0)
