Marbled Easter Eggs with Whipped Cream

Marbled Easter Eggs are my ultimate favorite way of decorating eggs for Easter.  It’s totally acceptable mess that everyone loves!  We released our marbled Easter Egg Decorating almost 10 years ago when everyone was rolling their eggs in shaving cream.  We wanted to share a safer food alternative, because we LOVE to eat our hardboiled eggs after we’re done admiring our short lived creativity.

Rolling eggs in whipped cream is sweet, finger licking, messy business that definitely leaves an impression with egg decorating kiddos!

Supplies for Marbled Easter Eggs

Hard boiled eggs (directions below)

4 oz. frozen whipped cream, thawed

Gel food coloring

A lot of paper towels

Marbled Easter Eggs with Whipped Cream

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • 4 oz. PICS whipped topping, frozen and thawed
  • Gel food coloring


Place 4 oz. of processed whipped topping into a 13 x 9 glass baking dish.  Or, if you prefer to throw away the mess, use a disposable foil pan.

Add different gel food colorings to the whipped cream in strips, gently swirling the color through the whipped topping with a butter knife. Don't mix the colors, instead create stripes of each gel food dye color.  

Roll the hard boiled eggs in the whipped cream mixture, through the various colors until they are fully covered one at at time.

Place the eggs on a baking rack or other fat surface in the refrigerator and let the eggs set for at least an hour. Wipe away the excess whipped cream with a damp, not soaked, paper towel.

Voila! You have created gorgeous marbled Easter Eggs.

Tips for less mess making these Easter Eggs:

  • Wear disposable gloves.
  • Wear a smock, apron or old shirt you don’t mind getting covered with food dye.
  • Spread the whipped cream and gel into a disposable foil pan so that it can all easily be discarded when finished.

How do you hard boil eggs?

Easter is the perfect opportunity to teach children how to hard boil eggs; one of mother nature’s best fast foods.  It’s a forever life skill!

1. Place the eggs into a pan and cover with cold water, approximately one inch above the eggs.
2. Bring the water in the pan to a rolling boil.
3. Place a cover on the pan, set the time and let the eggs cook at the boiling state for approximately 7 minutes.
4. Turn off the burner and let the eggs continue to set in the hot water, covered for an additional 7 minutes.
