This tutorial uses a pre-made egg (Creme Egg) to form the shape of the chick's body, but you might instead decide to:
- Roll sugarpaste into egg shape
- Use polystyrene eggs if you're concerned about the weight on top of the cake
- Make your own chocolate eggs using moulds and fill them with treats of your own choice!
For instructions on how to prepare your pre-made egg (Creme Egg) as used in this tutorial, see the accompanying tutorial on how to make a fondant bunny.

Top tip! Make ahead of time and allow to fully dry, then give a basket of decorated eggs for Easter as a lovely homemade gift.
