Since you need a good sized hole to pour out the confetti, we found that it was easiest to crack the very top of the egg. Tap it lightly on the countertop a few times to avoid cracking the body of the egg, then drain the yolk through the hole at the top into a small bowl. Place the bowl of yolks in the refrigerator so you can use them later to make scrambled eggs. Gently rinse the eggs and dry them before coloring them.

The process of coloring peeled eggs is no different from coloring regular hard-boiled eggs. Just handle the eggs carefully to prevent the shells from cracking further. Prepare egg dye of several colors in separate containers. You can use food coloring and vinegar. Mix about 1/2 cup hot water with 15-25 drops food coloring.

Stir and add 1 teaspoon white vinegar. Dye eggs in wide-mouth jars and use tongs to place the eggs in the dye and remove them, or wear protective gloves and hand dip them into a shallow bowl of dye. Once you've colored as many eggs as you like, let them dry completely before filling them.

You can also fill the eggs with sprinkles or birdseed if you plan to crack them outside. Once the eggs are filled, cut a square from a piece of colored tissue paper large enough to cover the hole in the top of the egg (by 5cm). Using a glue stick, apply glue to one side of the square and place it over the hole, pressing gently around the edges to prevent the confetti from spilling out. Or you can use regular glue (like in the photo) and apply it directly to the egg to glue the paper. Once the glue is dry, the cascarones are ready to open!
