Strawberry Cascarones DIY
With April Fool’s Day falling so close to Easter this year, trick your friends with these confetti eggs disguised as strawberries. There’s nothing as fun as a bowl of cascarones just waiting to be cracked over unsuspecting heads!
Materials needed: eggs, red food coloring
Step 1: Starting with blown-out eggs (see directions here), dye eggs red. Let dry.
Step 2: Carefully take the top 1/4 off the side of the egg that already has the bigger hole. Fill with confetti.
Step 3: Cut a small circle of red tissue paper, place glue around the edge of the hole and seal the egg closed.
Step 4: Cut out a leafy strawberry stem from the green tissue paper. I looked at this one for reference, but it doesn’t need to be exact. Layer your tissue paper as many times as you have eggs, and you will only have to do this step once.
Step 5: Gently rumple the leaves and glue them to the top of the red tissue paper circle.
Step 6: Make “seeds” using the gold paint pen on the strawberry egg.
Step 7: Crack on someone’s head and enjoy!
