Perfecting our Easter decorating skills

For the past several days, I’ve been scouring the supermarkets high and low for white eggs, the prized foundation of any good egg decorating endeavor. While everything from chocolates to margarine are being marketed in Easter packaging – white eggs have been nowhere to be found. I discovered that I could buy a dozen pre-decorated, brightly-hued, had-once-been-white eggs in a plastic case. But the act of decorating was really the point here, so, like the rest of the Czech shoppers I met in the egg aisle, I had to settle for brown eggs this year.
