Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
Supplies you will need:
Bowl of Vinegar
Original shaving cream or you can use whipped cream (edible option)
Food coloring of choice
Toothpick or chopstick
Place hard boiled eggs in a bowl of vinegar. Let the eggs soak for 20 minutes; this will help the dye soak into the shells for a vibrant color.
** If you plan to eat the eggs and are using whipped cream instead of shaving cream, skip the vinegar soak.
Fill a shallow baking dish with about an inch thick layer of shaving cream or whipped cream. Smooth the cream with a spatula. Generously place drops of food coloring on top of the cream. When most of the surface is covered with food coloring, drag a toothpick or chopstick across the top of the cream to swirl and marble the colors.
Next, put on some rubber gloves to protect your hands from the dye and gently roll the eggs across the surface of the cream until completely covered. Place the egg on a paper towel and let dry for about 10-15 minutes—don't wipe off any of the cream until the egg has completely dried. Repeat this process with as many hard-boiled eggs as you'd like to color, reusing the colored cream mixture.
To clean the egg, you can dip each egg into a bowl of water or simply wipe the cream off with a paper towel.
** Eggs decorated with shaving cream are not edible, but eggs made with whipped cream are safe to eat as long as they are stored in the refrigerator.
