How To Dye Eggs With Shaving Cream

I should admit, I just kind of don’t like coloring eggs with dye kits. The whole vinegar thing sucks.

Plus they have to sit. And I’m just not very patient. And the colors in the kits suck.

But shaving cream easter eggs? That seemed like a lot more fun. You can mix-up your own color combinations by just adding a few drops of food coloring on top of the shaving cream in each muffin tin for just about anything.

Then just drop the eggs into the colored shaving cream. Or whipped cream–you could do the same with whipped cream or cool whip, you know.

And I thought it would be fun to kind of roll the eggs with shaving cream and food coloring all over them–some of which turned out insanely cool.

But I also experimented with just picking them up and plopping them into another muffin tin. And THAT was cool.

And unlike when you’re dying the eggs the old fashioned way, there’s nowhere near as much wait time, either.

You just drop the eggs in the muffin tins and, because the concentration of food coloring is so high, you can just take them out almost immediately. You don’t have to wait hardly at all.
