Tie-Dyed Easter Eggs using Icing Colors

It’s Easter, so it’s time to color eggs! But aren’t you past the dye tablets and wire dipper? Make one-of-a-kind Easter eggs using one of these fabulous and (mostly) easy techniques, thanks to Wilton food-safe products, like Wilton Icing Colors, Color Mist food color spray, Pearl Dust edible accents and FoodWriter edible color markers.

Tie-Dyed Easter Eggs
It’s so easy to color your Easter eggs using icing colors, cotton swabs and paper towels. Just daub on the icing colors and rub with a paper towel to blend. You’ll love playing with the color combinations for bold or subtle results.

Make Easter eggs with an ombré look by painting hard-cooked eggs with colored Pearl Dust edible accents mixed with Wilton Pure Lemon Extract. By overlapping the colors in the center section, you can create a third color, so the colors appear to blend from one to another.

Use a FoodWriter edible color marker in black or another color to doodle designs on eggs for a modern Easter basket. Whether you attempt one of our designs or create your own, zendoodling has an additional benefit of calming and focusing your mind.
