Tools for Marbleized Easter Eggs

Marbelized Eggs - Shaving Cream

Step 1

Cover cookie sheet with shaving cream or whipped cream and smooth down with the back of a spoon.

Step 2

Add food coloring drops, and mix into shaving cream or whipped cream with knife or toothpicks.  I like the knife because it’s fast to clean (so the colors don’t mix) and fast to mix with the colors.

Step 3

Roll your hard boiled eggs in the shaving cream.  It doesn’t take much, one tray will cover about 4 dozen eggs.

Step 4

Allow eggs to dry for 10-15 minutes. Then gently wipe off shaving cream with a paper towel. Make sure you don’t wash them off, because the even color will go away!

Note that eggs are porous   so if you use shaving cream, don’t eat these!  AND if you don’t want to eat dye, don’t eat them either way!

    Cute idea!

  • Milica

    I was wanting to try this and heard it works even better if you dip the eggs in vinegar first. I was going to try a few before I let the kids loose on them!

  • My boys will love this. Can’t wait to try it.

  • Ryan

    Looks fun, but not eating the eggs goes against the whole frugal mindset. You can use the eggs for egg salad sandwiches or deviled eggs , spinach salad, Cobb salad, etc. Eggs are so nutritious too! I couldn’t just throw them away

    • Polly

      I wonder if you could use cool whip instead of shaving cream so the eggs would still be edible. I couldn’t waste all those eggs either. 🙂 I think it’s safe to assume that since eggs are porous the shaving cream actually gets into the shell of the egg. 🙂

    • Anna

      I completely agree with Ryan on eating the eggs instead of tossing them out, but funky color aside would they be safe to eat afterward? My concern would be that shaving cream really is not meant to be eaten, and if they are porous enough to absorb color inside, would they be absorbing shaving cream? I can’t imagine that would be very tasty :p

    Thought about blowing the eggs out and then coloring them after they are hollow. This way I would still be using my eggs. Can’t throw out perfectly good eggs either.

  • Anna

    Just tried it with cool whip and it worked great 🙂 and best of all no soapy taste 😀

  • Robin

    I read a suggestion, haven’t tried it, that said to blow out the eggs and freeze them in 2 or 3 egg batches and freeze them to use later in things like cakes and cookies where the eggs don’t need to be pretty to use them. This was so the kids could color more eggs and not have to worry about using them right away but I think it would be good if you wanted to use something non-edible to color them.

      Uncooked eggs don’t freeze we’ll, wouldn’t recommend this especially with alot of eggs 🙁

      • Deb

        Actually you can freeze eggs, egg whites freeze best and last for several months. If you want to freeze whole make sure you break up the eggs first. I’m a pastry Chef and I do this all the time. Fresh eggs (yolks) last only 3 days once they are cracked in the refrigerator.

    Great idea! Thank you for sharing…I’m going to use it in my classroom tomorrow.

    Cool whip works well with red and blue and no vinegar. I wanted something I wasn’t afraid my 10 month old would eat. He loved it and just threw him in the bath after!
