How to Dye Easter Eggs the Easy Way — With Shaving Cream! | thegoodstuff

Decorate a batch of hard-boiled eggs with this fun twist on the traditional. Instead of using vinegar, foamy shaving cream makes a perfect medium for swirly food coloring.

Though I don’t recommend eating eggs made in this way, it’s a creative way to get crafty for Easter. (You can swap out the shaving cream for whipped cream if you like! Check out this recipe for whipped cream-dyed Easter eggs from Spend With Pennies.) Kid-friendly and quick, here’s how to dye Easter eggs with shaving cream:

    Are the eggs dyed like this edible afterwards?

      Hi Bi,
      Great question. We wouldn’t recommend eating these eggs after they’re dyed! :)
