    Because there are donated prizes involved and they can only be shipped within the US.

    Yes!

    hatching eggs are just no and it is too expensive to ask someone donating to ship out of country.

    I'm still hoping to get mine done. Ended up in the hospital after a mild heart attack and will be having a heart cath and most likely stents put in tomorrow so we didn't make the trip to Madison after all. But I still have a slight delay in getting my entry done.

    I was also planning to use Rice Crispie treats for my basic foundation, so thanks for the tip about letting it set overnight!!

    Mr. Pea:
    ALL GLUTEN FREE
    ALL VEGETARIAN

    This is my entry, he's a peacock, observing some of his hen's eggs.

    Made from:
    "Feathers" Almonds painted with a food color, water, and powdered sugar mixture.
    "Eggs" Store bought Easter candy.
    "Eyes" Painted almonds just like the "feathers"
    "Body" DIY microwave cupcake [​IMG]
    "Head" DIY vegetarian fondant, painted with food color mixture.
    If you have any other questions about how it was made or what it was made from feel free to ask [​IMG]

    Everything is edible except the plate and flowers.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Each and every feather had to be "painted" three different times...THIS TOOK FOREVER!

    Then they had to be all put together, layered on the tail. I used toothpicks to help the feather's placement be precise.
