I used boxed carrot cake mix. This made 10 egg-cakes and also 16 regular cupcakes.
So... the hollowing out of the eggs took a while. I couldn't find my corkscrew (alas!), but I used a nut pick and it worked well. I found that if I started the hole with a pin, then enlarged it with the nut pick, it worked best. As a bonus, I used the nut pick to get into the hole and "scramble" the egg, which helped in the expulsion process.

I made the carrot cake according to the box instructions, and then filled it with a pastry bag fitted with a large-holed tip. This part was pretty messy. And...
I overfilled them...
No problem - all you have to do is scrape off the overflow and then wipe the egg down with a damp cloth.

I scooped it out like I would a soft boiled egg. And it was wonderful. You could serve with cream cheese frosting "dipping sauce" if you like.
I served the "eggs" for dessert... I think the kids liked them.
