Sugar eggs are a fragile thing. My cute niece, Ashley was doing such an awesome job putting decorations in her egg- then I helped put the two sides together. Aack! The two sides shattered in my hands. Over the next days I glued (royal icing) the shell back piece by piece. The decoration on the outside is to cover/hide all the repaired areas. Eggs are like people- don't give up on them even when you think they are broken beyond repair.
