Whipped Cream Easter Eggs (Alternative to Shaving Cream Eggs)- Skip the dip-dye kits this year and create beautiful marbled Easter Eggs using whipped cream and food coloring.
Shaving cream eggs are gaining popularity as a fun, alternative to traditional dip dye. The combination of the shaving cream and food coloring creates a pretty marbled look that resembles watercolors.
The downside to using shaving cream is that it is not food-safe, so you shouldn’t eat the eggs. Eggs shells are porous and a small amount of shaving cream could be absorbed, affecting the inside of the egg. Whipped cream creates the same marbled effect as shaving cream, except it is food safe.
These dyed eggs are a fun Easter project to make with kids.

Whipped Cream Easter Eggs (Alternative to Shaving Cream Eggs)
Hard boiled eggs
Liquid food coloring
Plastic disposable gloves
Container for the Cool Whip (I used an 8 x 8 baking dish)
Hard boil the eggs and let them cool. Soak them in a bowl of vinegar for 15 minutes. Scoop the Cool Whip into the baking dish and smooth it out using the back of a spoon. Add drops of food coloring and swirl it around using a toothpick.
Take an egg and swirl it around in the whipped cream, making sure that you coat all sides. Be sure to wear plastic gloves so your hands don’t get stained! Place the shaving cream-covered egg on a paper towel on a baking sheet and let it sit for 20 minutes. Wipe off the shaving cream with a paper towel. Repeat this process with the other eggs. The shaving cream mixture can be reused.
