Drunk Baking Problem! I don't know if I put eggs in this batter before putting it in the fridge. How can I tell for sure?

At some point last night during drunk Christmas Eve revels I decided to get a head start on all the baking I had to do today. I creamed the batter before realizing we were out of flour, so I put the batter in the fridge for the next day when I could run to the store.
The recipe calls for FIVE eggs, and I'm about 65% sure there are eggs in this batter. The only other ingredients mixed thus far in the batter are a 1/2 pound of butter, 1/2 cup of shortening and 3 c of sugar. The batter is thawing a bit now, but this is what it looks like. Any science-y ways of figuring out for sure if there are eggs in here?
