You’ll need hard-boiled eggs, orange egg dye, Wilton White Ready-To-Use Rolled Fondant, gel food coloring in shades of light brown, dark brown, black, and red, Fine Tip Primary Colors FoodWriter® Edible Color Markers, and piping gel to use as glue to make facial features. (Optional supplies: Yellow Skittles or M&M’s to use as the dog tag.

Tint 1/2 oz. of fondant light brown, 1/2 oz. dark brown, and  1/2 oz. red. Tint 1/4 oz. black; reserve 1/4 oz. white.

STEP 3

Roll out red fondant 1/4 in. thick. Use knife to cut a strip, 3/8 in. wide x 4 1/2 in. long. Wrap into a circle, securing ends with damp brush. Attach egg with piping gel. This is your egg-dog’s collar.

From black fondant, shape an oval 1/2 in. high x 5/8 in. wide x 3/8 in. thick. Attach for nose with piping gel. Roll a small white ball and attach with piping gel for nose highlight.
