Making Cascarones

What a fun Easter tradition! Breaking a hollow decorated egg filled with confetti on someone's head!! Can you hear my sarcasm?? :)I actually don't like this tradition to much because its me that always ends up with confetti filled hair, but because my kids love it I sort of love it too. :)
I decided this year my boys were old enough to help me make some. I knew that I was in for a mess but we dove right in. My almost 4 yr old had a friend over to help us. So, if you can image a 4,3, & 2 yr old's making cascarones!?!?! It was a blast! Plus I had the help of my sweet friend Sandi. They did a great job.

You need:
  • Hollowed out eggs 
  • Food coloring 
  • Vinegar 
  • Boiling water 
  • confetti 
  • Tissue paper 


To hollow out an egg I cup the egg in my hand and tap the end gently with a spoon. It makes a circular hole in the egg. You then can use the spoon to dig out the cracked egg.

Next, die your eggs with food coloring. You will need a teaspoon of vinegar per 1/2 cup of boiling water and 20 drops of the color you desire your eggs to be.

Fill your colored eggs with confetti. Glue a square of tissue paper over the hole.

Have fun cracking your eggs!! Happy Easter Everyone!! :)


  1. This were popular at Olde Spanish Days in Santa Barbara, California when I was a child. Brings back many wonderful memories. They were so much fun! Thanks for memories.
