Dying Easter Eggs with Cool Whip or Shaving Cream

Cool whip dyed Easter eggs are a food-safe alternative to create beautiful Easter eggs. The same process may be used with shaving cream however the eggs will not be edible.

  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Cool Whip
  • Food Coloring gel (for brighter color) or liquid
  • Vinegar


  • Soak the hard-boiled eggs in vinegar for two minutes. NOTE: This helps to make the colors more vibrant.
  • Take the whip cream (or shaving cream) and spread it into a pan or dish with sides.
  • Add drops of food coloring to the whip cream. Use as many drops and / or colors as desired.
  • Using a toothpick, fork, or knife swirl the food coloring around. Be careful to not combine the colors too much.
  • Place an egg in the Cool Whip and food coloring and roll using a spoon. One roll is recommended so that the colors don’t mix. Repeat with as many eggs as you choose.
  • Let the eggs set in the cool whip mixture covered in the color for 10-30 minutes. This allows the egg to absorb the food coloring.
  • Rinse the eggs with cool water and then dry!
  • Repeat with different colors and combinations.
