- You can make fresh whipped cream if desired using 2 cups whipping cream, 4 tablespoons powdered sugar and beat until soft peaks form.
- You must use vinegar water to help set the color otherwise your eggs will not grab the color or marble.
- Some use shaving cream, but I would not recommend it especially if you plan to eat the hard boiled eggs, which I also would not recommend …especially if they have been out of the refrigerator for too long of a period of time.
TIP: What to do with the leftover colored whipped cream????
Peel hard boiled eggs ( not the dyed ones) and cut in half, remove yolk for deviled egg filling, place the egg halves in color sections of the whipped cream and coat ( wear gloves) and let them sit for 5-10 minutes in the dye. Rinse and allow to dry on a paper towel. You will have colored egg halves for for deviled egg tray. Fill colored eggs with filling.
