    Tips for making shaving cream eggs

    • Wear rubber gloves
    • Don’t mix the colors too much into the shaving cream.  The brightest colored eggs happened in the areas where the dye was sitting on top of the shaving cream.
    • Lining the pan with aluminum foil will bake for easier cleanup.
