Marbled Easter Eggs!

How to Make Marbled Easter Eggs

Fill your pan with shaving cream until it’s about an inch thick.

Drip food coloring onto the cream. Don’t be afraid to be generous with the colors — the more you use, the brighter your eggs will be.

Use a toothpick to swirl and marble your food coloring droplets. Don’t mix too much you want to see the individual colors

Pick up a hard-boiled egg and Dip or roll it in the cream, coating it completely.

Carefully place the egg onto a paper towel and let it dry for about 20 minutes.
Wipe the remaining cream off with a clean paper towel to reveal your colorful marbled pattern.
