Marbeled Easter Egg DIY
Although the winter is still lingering and it does not feel like it, spring is here and with spring comes beautiful colors and Easter. A tradition that occurs for many families and communities are Easter egg hunts. They fill little plastic eggs with goodies for all ages and hide them around the yard for the young ones to find, it can get pretty competitive. Some families will even have just a small household family hunt in their house with actual eggs and a way to make it fun is to decorate them. Throughout the years it has developed from just solid colored eggs made with vinegar and food coloring to making them multicolored to crayons and stickers. Now there are more creative and fun ways to make your eggs even cooler. A new trend is shaving cream eggs to create a marveled look but the question can you eat them after arose, and so a more safer and eating friendly way is to make them with whip cream. It works just as well and you can have a yummy snack after.
What you will need:
Whip cream or cool whip
- Hard boil the number of eggs that you would like to color.
- Put a thick layer of whip cream on the baking pan and spread evenly across
- Put a few drops of food coloring in the color you’d like
- Use a toothpick to drag the drops of color through the cream. You will want to
use colors that will blend together well. Blue and red, red and yellow, and blue and yellow.
- Gently roll your hard boiled eggs through the whip cream. Roll evenly so you don’t get too much coloring in one area!
- Stick them on a drying rack or a sheet of cardboard. A rack would be better as they aren’t touching as much and they will turn out better
- Wait for the cream to dry. It should take about 10 minutes.
- Once it has dried use a paper towel to to wipe off excess whip cream. The food coloring will stick leaving you with a really cool marveled egg!
Now you can eat the whip cream. Just throw your face into the pan and start slurping! Although it is recommended to not eat the food colored whip cream because it could stain your skin for a bit, so if you have any leftover white whip cream go ahead.
