     Very Important Tips To Know Before Make This Garnish!

  1. Always have an extra egg to use to avoid stress. If something goes wrong with one, you can use another. For example, not every egg we can peel easy and some after peeling are not possible to use to make the heart shape.
  2. Sometimes egg white can be fragile. The skewer can cut egg white instead of press on it. We can wrap the egg in plastic to prevent damage to the egg white.

      Great idea of how to make heart-shaped hard-boiled eggs without the cookie-cutter or any molds.

The egg can be sliced or we just cut it in half and have 2 hearts. So easy technique!

We Need

  1. Freshly made warm hard-boiled egg
  2. 1 wooden skewer
  3. 2 rubber bands
  4. Scissors
  5. Juice or milk carton

*I tried to use a cold egg from the refrigerator and it does not work great as a freshly boiled egg. It can be shaped but white of the egg very fragile and easy to damage.

  1. Cut rectangular from the beverage carton. Place the freshly boiled warm egg inside.

We can use instead of a beverage carton, side of large metal can or plastic if it rigid enough to hold sides of the egg. We can also use cardboard too, just cover it with food-grade plastic.

2. Place the wooden skewer on the top of the egg and secure it with a rubber band.

I used a corn skewer or candy apple stick. We can substitute it for writing pen refill.

3. Leave a rubber band for 5-10 minutes. Remove egg.

We can use instead of a rubber band sewing elastic, for example.

4. We can slice egg and have a few hearts or just cut in half and have two hearts.

I made my hard boiled egg in the heart shape without any mold! Fun and easy egg garnish idea to decorate any plate!

We Need

  1. Freshly made warm hard-boiled egg
  2. Plastic wrap
  3. Wooden pick up sticks
  4. 2 Rubber bends

In the photo, I missed 2 rubber bands. We need 2 rubber bands to hold skewers and plastic on the egg.

How To Make

  1. Place egg on plastic wrap. At first wrap the egg in plastic wrap and this way, skewers don’t cut egg white. Then wrap the egg in plastic with skewers. When I roll the egg I adjust skewers so my flower petals have the same size petals.

2. Secure the skewers with rubber bands on each side. Leave for 5-10 minutes and unwrap.

The flower made out of hard boiled egg is cute and great to decorate any plate for kids or make summer salad for the party!
