Cascarones!

Today my great-niece Jordan stopped by to help me dye the egg shells for the cascarones,(confetti filled eggs).
She was a very focused worker and we got 5 dozen eggs done in no time.
I have been saving eggs for weeks. As you can see above,I try to crack off as small an end as I can,then I rinse them well in HOT water,and set them aside to dry.
We dye them just as you do hard boiled eggs and tomorrow when they are completely dry,we'll fill them with confetti and glue down some tissue paper to cover the hole. Hopefully,I will remember to get the camera out for that part of the process.
