Below is the easiest tutorial for making Easter eggs I shared on my blog Veena Azmanov. I have used the same process for making the eggs but without any extra flowers. Just royal icing for decorations.


  • Marzipan – Commercial marzipan has two parts of powdered sugar for every one-part cashews or almonds which I think is too sweet. I use an almost 1:1 ratio of cashews or almonds to powdered sugar/icing sugar. You can of course, play with that ratio as well. I am using homemade uncooked marzipan and personally, the uncooked marzipan has a smoother texture but you can also use cooked marzipan.
  • Binding – Commercial marzipan also uses egg whites as a binding agent but to avoid eating raw eggs I use rose water or sugar syrup to combine.
  • Chocolate Marzipan – below in the pictures you can see I have also made some chocolate marzipan eggs and for those I have used my chocolate marzipan recipe.

Easter isn't complete without Easter eggs. you can make easter eggs with cooked marzipan or uncooked marzipan as I have here. Personally, the uncooked marzipan has a smoother texture. These homemade marzipan Easter eggs are quick and easy to make.

Equipment /Tools

  • Mixing bowl
  • Wooden spoon
  • Spatula


  • 500 grams (17 oz) Cashews or Almonds
  • 600 grams (21 oz) Powdered sugar Icing or confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup Rose water


  • 240 grams (8 oz) Powdered sugar
  • 2 – 4 tbsp Milk or cream
  • 2 drops Rose essence
  • ½ tsp Lemon juice


  • Nuts – pulse the blanched cashews or almonds in the food processor, blender, or spice grinder until you have a smooth powder. Add a few tablespoons of powdered sugar to the mixture to prevent the nuts from releasing their oil.
    Pro tip – the finer the ground nuts the smoother the marzipan texture. So make sure to grind into a fine powder.
  • Marzipan – Combine ground nuts and powdered sugar in a bowl. Add just enough rose water or sugar syrup to bring it all together into a ball. Lightly knead to form a smooth ball. Cover with cling wrap and let sit for 30 minutes
  • Divide and color – Divide the marzipan into portions and color each portion with food gel colors that you want to use.
  • Divide and shape – Divide each colored portion into a golf size ball. Press smooth side down into the egg mold, neaten the edges and remove.
    Pro tip – I like to line the egg mold with plastic wrap which prevents the marzipan from sticking to the mold. Watch the video to see how I do it.
  • Dry – place the eggs on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and let them air dry for a few minutes.
  • Icing – combine all the icing ingredients in a small bowl until you have a smooth piping consistency.
    Pro tip – do not add all the milk/cream all at once otherwise the consistency will be too soft.
  • Decorate – place the icing in a piping bag with a star or leaf piping tip/nozzle as desired and pipe around and on top of the eggs. Leave them on the baking tray and let the icing dry completely.
  • Store – Then wrap each egg in decorative paper or keep them wrapped in an airtight container.
