    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.

    It's so funny that this thread shows up. Yesterday my mom got her's out that my x-SIL made for her 30 years ago. The little animals on the inside had broken so I took it back to my x-SIL and she is gonna make some more and fix it. My mom loves it and puts is out every Easter. I may have to make her a new one....hahaha

    My mother made them for many years. She made the sugar shells in halves then put tiny rabbits, grass, carrots, etc in a little scene - all made of royal icing. Then put them together. They were really pretty but a lot of work!

    My first experience with these was a TV program making Christmas bells but they were just bells and nothing else.

    If you have a World Market near you, they sell them there. "Spun Sugar Panoramic Eggs" $1.99 each (according to the flyer that came with this morning's paper).

    Wow haven't made one in years. Still have the form. Think I will next year for the little granddaughters. You need time and one week will not be enough and then to mail them. - J.
