So just for fun, I took a hard-boiled egg, gently poke my finger into the shell all over, making lots of little spiderwebby cracks, and dunk it into a bowl of blueberry juice. Let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes, then peeled away the shell. The result was like a cross between tie-dye and spiderwebs, although not as nice as Martha Stewart's came out (maybe cuz I didn't use organically homegrown blueberries from my 100-acre mansion in Maine). The picture really doesn't show the effect very well I'm afraid. Guess you gotta see it in person...
Then following a generic recipe for devilled eggs, (adding green food coloring), I stuffed the egg 1/2's with the mashed yolks, and set it yolk-side down on a little piece of lettuce. Topped it off with some black sesame seeds, a tiny sprig of dill, and a little salt.
Eat the egg, lettuce and all. I wanted to add little red onion legs, but my onion was suspiciously hairy.

Great looking egg! I'm sure martha wouldnt mind you plucking her organic blueberries from her 100 acre garden :D

I used to make ghost and mice eggs but lost my patience for it after the 2nd or 3rd party lol

I love both of the ideas! :D

I usually make deviled eggs (bedeviled), but run out of time to jazz them up like this... I must try to plan out more time this year! :)

That pic was from one of our first parties. Didn't have my brain or hand mold back then. I had found an idea for a 'bloody pasta salad' and filled the gloves with water and froze them. Gave a nice effect and kept the salad cool.

At least that's what I *think* I did haha I remember trying so many things back then. Floating hands in the punchbowl, radish eyes in the punchbowl and those eggs.

Here's a pic after I had the hand and brain mold



And here are some other mice made from radishes. A dutch friend of ours made them She works for a catering company :)

MsMeeple - what a great spread...
Bad Table Manner - I know that I let my eggs sit an hour in the cold juice and it worked great. The only problem I had with them is that the guests didn't see the webs because of the dim lighting. Lot of effort that was wasted, sigh. Gonna try your deviled egg recipe and the green food coloring...i will just remember to focus the lighting a little better this year.

itsy bitsy tiny pieces of black olives lol

I used a thin straw for the circles and a the point of a small knife for the rest. You also have to cut out the spaces on the egg itself in order to place them on the eggs. On the egg ghost in the top right of the photo, you can see that the eyebrow fell off.
