Easter Egg Decorating Party

April 19th, 2011 by Beth Somers

Have you ever thought about hosting an Easter Egg Decorating Party? Set aside an afternoon to decorate colorful eggs and enjoy festive, effortless Easter treats with your kids and neighbors.

Did you know that you can color your Easter eggs with Wilton icing colors? Just a small amount results in vibrant color! Let the kids personalize the eggs by using FoodWriters™ Edible Markers. Send guests home with cute carrot gift bags filled with jelly beans or chocolate coated candies. What could be better than that?

    Please tell me you aren’t seriously promoting using the Edible Markers. I bought 2 packs of those and they are terrible. My little girl was so frustrated and ended up in tears.. the last thing I would do is have them at a party!

      Kim, what problems did you have with the Foodwriters? As you can see on the podcast, they write really well on the colored Easter Eggs. I love them as a decorating tool for little kids.

      I agree, I bought the food writers for a project and they didn’t show up at all.

  2. I haven’t had any problems with our FoodWriters but I’ve never tried them on eggs.

    I love the carrot take away bags! The Wilton Jelly Beans taste SO good!

    How long do you let the eggs stay in the dye for?

    • Beth Somers says:

      As long as you’d like – the color intensifies if you leave the eggs in longer , but you’ll see good color after about 15 seconds. Have fun!

  5. Great job Beth.. I think the Easter Basket Cupcake Wrappers are really cute. Great cupcake ideas by Wilton.

    When coloring the eggs as per your instructions, do you use cold water, warm water, or room temperature water with the food coloring?
