But for a design that is actually much easier to master than it looks, try these marbled Easter eggs. To achieve the beautiful marble effect, search your medication cabinet for a can of shaving cream (or go to the fridge to get whipped cream if you want to eat it) and let the food coloring work. The best part? The unique design hides all imperfections, so you don’t have to worry if your crafting skills meet the requirements.
How to make marbled Easter eggs
- Fill your baking sheet with shave or whipped cream until it’s about an inch thick, and then smooth it out with a rubber spatula.
- Drip food coloring onto the cream. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the colors – the more you use, the lighter your eggs will be.
- Use a toothpick to swirl and marble your food coloring droplets.
- Pick up a hard-boiled egg – first put on rubber gloves! – and roll it into the cream and coat it completely.
- Carefully place the egg on a paper towel and let it dry for about 20 minutes.
- Wipe the rest of the cream with a clean paper towel to reveal your colorful marble pattern.
Kind reminder: if you want to eat the colored eggs, use whipped cream. I’m not sure what other colored eggs you can for sure Eat? Follow this guide.
