    That was my favorite thing about easter and I never had one. They were not to eat. they were white surgar stuff and decorated with frosting or something hard. There was a round hole at the end and you would look in there and there was some Easter scene. what happened to them?

    I remember those, they were beautiful. The Govt probably thought they had too much sugar and were bad for us and banned them.

    Years ago I made three of them for my two granddaughters and for a friends daughter. I don't have the recipe any longer but they were not that difficult to make. I'll have to look at the tutorial. The only problem I had was getting a scene together for the inside but eventually with tiny jelly beans and grass and tiny baby chicks it worked out.

    I just saw some at Bed Bath/Beyond - right by the registers! I couldn't believe it. I didn't think anyone made them anymore.
