Confetti Eggs [Cascarones]

Cascarones from Abby Try Again

After seeing this image from Abby Try Again, I want to make some cascarones (confetti filled Easter eggs).  So I checked out a couple of tutorials.

First you dye them the traditional way, then empty them out and rinse them. (we will have to have breakfast for dinner that night).

All of the instructions I have read lead me to believe that you traditionally empty them first and then dye them, but I have dyed empty eggs before and it is MESSY!  You have to hold them down and your fingers are black when you are done.

After they dry you fill them with confetti.

And cover the hole with tissue paper and glue.  

You then run around cracking them on each others heads.  Now THAT sounds like an Easter tradition we need to start in our family.
