Food-Safe Easter Egg Decorating

Easily make your Easter eggs both incredible and edible! Using innovative colors from the cake decorating aisle, we scrambled together to find three unique food-safe techniques.

Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:half hour + dry time

Project Instructions

  • 1
    FoodWriter Eggs: Draw designs on egg one side and let dry. Then draw on the other half and let that side dry too!
  • 2
    Color Mist Ombré Eggs: Place egg upside down in carton to spray bottom. Spray directly above egg to apply color heaviest on the bottom. From the center, spray outward strokes, moving the spray can away as you go to create a fade effect.
  • 3
    Icing Color Eggs: Mix icing color with water in a cup. Tip: Add more water to the icing color if you want a lighter-colored egg and less water for a darker-colored egg. Pick up color with brush and dab onto paper towel to have a very light amount of color on the brush. Overlap colors to create a tie-dye effect.
