How to make marbleized Easter eggs

Instead of dipping eggs, try rolling them in coloured shaving cream for an eggs-tra cool marbleized effect.

How-to: You’ll need: gloves, a baking dish, shaving cream, food colouring, a toothpick, hard-boiled eggs, and paper towel. 1. Wearing rubber or latex gloves (this gets messy), fill a glass baking dish with shaving cream. Spread the cream evenly.

2. Add drops of food colouring. Use 2 or 3 different colours (neon is fun). Use a toothpick to mix colours. Be careful not to overmix as the colours will get muddy.

3. Roll hard-boiled egg through the coloured foam. Remove and let sit for 20 minutes.

4. Pat (don’t rub) off excess shaving cream with paper towel.
