Thinking about how to dye eggs with food coloring for Easter?

We’ve all used either classic Easter egg dye kits or paint to decorate your eggs. While there’s nothing wrong with either method, I wanted to do something different! I stumbled across this post from The Suburban Soapbox, where she uses whipped cream to dye Easter eggs. Yes, you heard me right – whipped cream!

Aside from using whipped cream, what struck me the most was how these eggs have a tie-dye effect. If I can get that appearance without physically holding the egg in dye, sign me up!

Don’t let the gorgeous tie-dye design of these eggs fool you; This DIY is actually super simple and is probably the easiest way to color eggs. It only requires hard-boiled eggs, a whipped topping, and food coloring. The rest you probably already have in your cabinets!

I’m using a simple food coloring kit from McCormick, but you can get creative with the colors you choose!

Tie Dye Easter Eggs




Hard boil however many eggs you desire.


(Optional) Soak your hard-boiled eggs in white vinegar for at least five minutes. This will help with making the colors more vibrant!


Spread a generous coat of whipped cream throughout a sheet pan.


Sprinkle around a bunch of food coloring drops. Swirl the drops using a skewer (or something similar) throughout the whipped cream so every inch is colored.


Dip the hard-boiled eggs into the dyed whipped cream. Let it sit for five to ten minutes.


Rinse off your eggs, and pat dry with paper towels. Display your eggs, and enjoy!

Hip Tips for this whip cream egg dye technique:

  • If you aren’t planning on eating your eggs, you can substitute the whipped cream for shaving cream.
  • I’m using a skewer to swirl the food coloring around, but you can use pretty much anything you have on hand, including a butter knife.
  • Soaking your hard-boiled eggs in vinegar is optional, but it does help with the color vibrancy. I soaked mine for 5-10 minutes before placing my eggs in the colored whipping topping.

    The only thing I didn’t use was the vinegar but my eggs sat for 30 minutes and when I rinsed them off they were white…ugh.

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh no! Sorry to hear this didn’t work for you, JoAnne! The vinegar is optional, but should make the colors more vibrant. Hoping it might work better for you if you decide to give it another try using vinegar. 🤞❤️
