These are sooooo cool! I've seen a few versions of egg shapers in catalogs lately, so I decided to take the plunge and get some. At about $10 for a set of 4, the plunge was delightfully shallow. They are super simple to do. Just boil your eggs and while they are still pretty warm (drop them in cold water for a few seconds to loosen the shells and save your fingers) peel them then put them in the shapers. It takes a bit of squeezing to close the shapers, but the eggs are pretty bendy, so no worries there! Once closed, pop them into cold water for about 12 mins and -Voila! Cool, fun eggs your kids will love! I can't wait to see the butter bean's reaction!
