Menlo Park resident’s Covid piñata lands in NIH Museum

by Linda Hubbard on April 6, 2023

Emails Menlo Park resident Elizabeth McCarthy of Covid piñata fame:

“Back in 2021, I mailed one of my piñatas to Dr. Anthony Fauci at the National Institute for Health, because I am his #1 fan. I just received a lovely letter from the NIH saying that they have added my Covid piñata to the permanent collection at the NIH Museum in Bethesda, Maryland. Obviously, I am so thrilled!”

More recently Elizabeth has turned her creative talents to making sugar panorama Easter eggs. She has six left that she is selling locally for $20. Contact her at 650-328-2083.

I have one of Elizabeth’s panorama Easter eggs and it is done so beautifully.
Vibrant colors, inside is decorated with an Easter scene, bunny and flowers.
Packaged to give as a gift!
I hope you order one!
I’m trilled with mine!

Oh, Kathy, thank you so much for the nice words! I had so much fun making sugar panorama Easter eggs. They are something that my mother taught me in the 1970s, and I am happy to continue the tradition.
