Begin by creating a ball of white clay about the size of a golf ball. Then roll it out into an asymmetric fried egg shape. You may need to cut it with an X-acto knife to get a good egg shape. Once your whites are ready, roll a small gumball sized amount of yellow clay into a ball and then squish to create a domed yolk. Press the yolk into the white clay.

Next, use the cutters to cut the first letter of each guests name out of the white part of the egg. Place all the eggs on your baking sheet and bake at 275F for 15 minutes. Let cool and then coat with polymer glaze if desired. Or you can just leave them matte like I did.
