Our kids enjoy making Easter Eggs every year, so we try to make each time decorating memorable and unique.   This year I asked my friend Megan from MnMSpecial to share a fun Easter post with us and she nailed it with one of the cutest Easter Egg Ideas I have seen.  (She’s brilliant like that.)Marbled Whipped Cream Dyed Easter Eggs


I grew up coloring Easter Eggs at my mother’s orange Formicaed snack bar. She set out cups of vinegar and colored tabs for me to dip until my hearts content. I’m pretty sure my mom grew up coloring eggs too, just like her mother before her. Actually, coloring Easter Eggs is an age old tradition that began centuries ago.

My mother has always been amazing. She let us be messy and make messes without fear. Me, on the other hand, have a very hard time letting my kids make a mess. It must skip a generation.

I have never let my kids decorate Easter Eggs with a cup of colored dye because it freaks me out. Last year I noticed all my friends posting shaving cream dyed eggs. I love eating hard boiled eggs, so the thought of putting a soapy type product on my eggs just felt wrong.

Egg shells are porous and I am not about to take chances on tasting a soapy egg. My grandmother once made a cake from a box that was sitting near a box of laundry detergent. You just can’t untaste those things. I realized that food safe products could be used with the same effects. Plus I loved the idea of not having a cup of colored liquid to spill all over the floor.

Easter Egg Ideas Whipped Cream Decorating

Marbled Whipped Cream Dyed Easter Eggs

You will need:
Whipped cream topping
Food safe coloring (I used food gel)
Hard boiled eggs
Baking sheet
Wire rack
Paper towel

Step 1 – Spread whipped topping out into a baking sheet.
Step 2 – Drop colors of dye randomly onto the whipped topping and swirl with a fork or toothpick. Be careful to keep certain colors away from each other like yellow and purple because it makes brown.
Step 3 – Put on gloves and roll eggs in the colored cream until fully covered. Set aside on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes for color to transfer.
Step 4 – Rinse eggs, dry and refrigerate until ready to use.

Easter Egg Ideas

I won’t lie, it’s messy, but it is a controlled messy. We used disposable food gloves to roll the eggs in the whip cream dye. I also had the youngest two shirtless because they kept leaning into the pan. They all had fun putting eggs into their favorite swirls of color and having Deviled Eggs for the first time.

What is your favorite way to eat hard boiled eggs after Easter?

    Not only are those some super cute Easter eggs, but they look FUN to make! I was a horrible Mom last year and we didn’t end up coloring eggs, so it’s definitely on this year, we will have to try this!

    Saw ya at A to Zebra linky. Great minds think alike! I actually posted a similar post on the same day too. Our technique was different though we painted. Our eggs turned out different, less of a tie-died look, and more of a watercolor look. Next year I am going to add flavorings to the whipped topping to make it even more fun. Happy Spring!

    Whipped Cream Marbled Eggs – love it! When my kids were little we made marbled eggs using olive oil but this method looks less greasy and more fun. I must remember this and so glad I found your link at the Bouquet of Talent Party. Seeing the photo of your kids brought back memories of the fun time I had making them with mine so many years ago. Love it!

    I love that you question the idea of soap on the egg shells, glad to see I am not the overly freaky person 😉 Also, the idea of a mess but controlled mess, LOVE IT!!! This is SUCH a great idea. I am doing Easter eggs a week late and now I am excited to try this with all the kids!!! We will do it outside :)

    I have colored eggs for Easter all my life and my daughter, Keri, who is 26, just said that she can’t break tradition, and wants to color eggs again this year. Growing up, we used Q-Tips and drew on them with food coloring. Stripes, dots, flowers, hyacinths, tulips, chicks, & bunnies! My Mom did let us play with the food coloring as kids. Last year, I just did the dipping business. This year, we will be using your method. My son, who is 31, will still join in with the coloring. I am happy that they enjoy traditions. It is so important for families to have them. Your Children look adorable and so proud of their eggs! Congratulations and keep up that wonderful tradition. In years to come, your children will have wonderful memories!
