For nearly thirty years, Cruz Olvera has been making cascarones for the Easter holiday. As the mother of three, she says she learned the craft for her kids. "No one, imagination. Since I saw my kids enjoy the eggshell, I taught myself how to do it." Olvera says she would sometimes buy the pre made cascarones from a store, but her kids would insist the homemade ones, and still do. "Even though they're adults, they still like doing it so I still collect a few, and I like doing it too. I like to break them on their heads." Cascarones are typically made in Hispanic families. Olvera says it's more than a tradition, it's quality time spent with her kids and every culture should make them. "In reality, yes. They miss the opportunity to participate with their own kids." This mom of three says she's made memories with her kids she'll never forget. Since I've never made them, she agreed to show me how step by step. She says she starts saving eggshells as early as January to make sure she'll have enough for Easter. "By April, I already have close to 300 eggshells." "Break it carefully. Then, empty everything inside and clean the eggshell." After you clean the shell, you then choose your favorite color of paint and get as creative as you can by decorating. Olvera says she and her family would have contests to see who could paint the prettiest egg and even draw each other. Then you fill the egg with confetti. She says more is better, making sure the person who gets cracked on is covered. Olvera then cuts a small piece of tissue paper and glues it over the hole. "I don't know when this tradition started, but I don't think it's going to end because it's really beautiful." Olvera says this is a tradition you can carry on for generations.
