It’s procrastination time again. Time to take a little break from the writing and do something fun with the family. I mentioned in an earlier post, the tradition we have in our family of making cascarones (confetti eggs) for Easter. Each year my Mother-in- Law makes dozens of these fun-filled treats for the kids to hunt and crack on the (hopefully unsuspecting) adults heads. Sometimes these cascarones have a slip of paper inside that can be redeemed for a prize. It’s great fun and we look forward to it every year.
There is something a little bit magic about a cascarone. Author Viola Canales charmingly portrays the collecting of eggs for cascarones to pit two characters against each other in her novel “The Tequila Worm.” In my current Work-in-Progress (WIP) I am trying to include a scene with cascrones, I don’t know if it will make the final draft but it sure is fun to write.
Save on Crafts has great step by step instructions on how to make your own cascarones. The pictures are helpful and they show a picture of the final product.
Have fun and get cracking. (He He)
