# I Am Making Of Gift For You. Is Matryoshka Egg. You Like.
So here we go with another Easter cooking experiment. I had studied the tenchiques and physics behind the actual Russian Matryoshka Dolls for the best part of 3 minutes -

and I figured I was ready for the big time. I went to the store and bought a good AUD$40 (16 pound) of hollow easter eggs with the intent to cut them in half and replace them in the style of a matryoshka doll.

So don your best Russian accent and let's begin.

Step 1 - Ingredients and Utensils.
A Crapload of eggs some chocolate to melt and knives. Because knives are cool and girls dig guys with knives.

Step 2 - The Biggest Egg
Unwrap said egg and attempt to cut along the 'seam' of the egg because this is the weaker point.
It turns out a flat knived approach works better than stabbing it with the tip - the 'hacksaw' approach just made cracks in the egg.
Any large cracks or pieces missing could easily be repaired with melted chocolate.

Step 3 - The Other Eggs
Similar technique to the first egg taking into consideration the difficulty involved with the egg encrusted with M&Ms. So basically in the end you have a whole heap of egg halves.

Step 4 - Cadbury Creme Egg Centre
OK stop here - you dont want to be halving the creme egg centre because doing so would unleash an armageddeon and there'd be fire and the world would explode. Creme eggs are meant to stay intact until consumption.

Step 5 - Assembly.
Assembly is just basically the reverse of the first few steps. Melt chocolate in the microwave in short bursts and seal each egg to its former half. Make sure to put the egg in the freezer to set the chocolate holding it together and then proceed to secure the next half.

Step 6 - Eating Chocolate
One of the eggs had m&ms in it so they had to be eaten before we could proceed a time consuming and tedious task but worth it in the end.

Step 7 - All done - sealing cracks and rewrapping the egg.
Theres a technique to this if possible seal cracks from the inside and smooth over with a knife. Then wrap the egg in the foil it came in and voila!

Tips and Tricks
Take your time - Don't try to cut it in one go work your way around the egg with the knife just cutting a little deeper each time around.
DON'T as Steph discovered rush and not be awesome like me - or you'll end up with an egg resembling these.

So yes! Thats about it. Remebering what Uncle Bortsch has telling you.

EDIT: And then give the egg to the once marsupial-breasted chinkabee and watch.

# Might head to the coast this weekend.
No passover or anything due to me not being jewish.
I can pretend to have a passover.
Does passing wind count? Because I just did that.

Looks like fun, but this is a religious project and the last time I had an "Easter egg" was about 20 years ago, so I have to say this is cult crap.

in addition to knives making you look cool etc, everyone knows that you run faster with a knife.
