Before dyeing your Easter eggs, prepare eggs to be blown hollow. We recommend mixing two varieties of food coloring at once—that way, the colors don't get muddy. To mix multiple two-tone colors at once, use a mini pie pan or muffin tin with multiple cups, or ramekins as we did here. Use this unique method featuring shaving cream to dye Easter eggs to celebrate the holiday.
