Duncan Hines Crystal Eggs

A variety of crystal eggs formed out of juice crystals with vitamin C, decorated with Duncan Hines into sparkling jewels for Easter .


  1. Stuffed Crystal Eggs
  2. Pour 75g dry juice crystals into a sealable bowl. Drip 30 drops of water randomly over the top. Do not pour the water or the juice crystals will dissolve. I use a small turkey baster or craft bottle. Shake to coat the droplets. Smush with a spoon until fine, then cover and shake.
  3. Press the crystals at least ¼” thick into a mold. Press it in as hard as you can. Set it out to dry.
  4. The next day, carefully tap the top of the mold and squeeze it gently to release the crystal egg. Let it dry a few days more so it’s solid.
  5. Take a small amount of Duncan Hines Icing and dye it yellow for yolks.
  6. Freeze it.
  7. Roll it into little yolk balls. Keep as frozen as possible.
  8. Put a little white icing into 2 halves of a crystal egg, place the yolk in, gently put the sides together.
  9. Get a little square of waxed paper. Put a dollop of icing. Stand the egg on it. Leave it a day or two to harden.
  10. Colour your Duncan Hines Icing. Decorate the eggs with beautiful and tasty designs full of Vitamin C.
  11. Creche
  12. Fill a lengthwise egg mold. Let dry. Remove from mold. Let dry more.
  13. Using Duncan Hines Icing, make a figure to sit in the crèche. If it’s long, dry a day or two, turn it over, press a toothpick down its length. Let both sides dry.
  14. Secure your figure into the crystal egg with a little icing, then decorate the edges.
  15. To stand it up, place a little icing on a piece of wax paper, sit the crèche in it, and prop it up with a small hard object behind it.
  16. Candle
  17. Fill two sides of a large mold. There will be a lot of cutting involved, so the sides should be pressed thicker, popped out the next day, then dried completely.
  18. Use a miniature screwdriver (scrubbed and sterilized) to cut. Keep your designs small and make sure there is a hole carved in the top of the egg so the flame won’t burn it.
  19. Put a little tea-light in the bottom. Seal the sides together. Decorate, nice to outline the holes.
  20. When you light it don’t leave it for very long.
