Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just an FYI Loved this version, but for some information to anyone using their farm fresh eggs from your backyard chickens, make sure that you SCRUB the eggs withsoapy water to remove the protective coating on the egg. We didn't and once dropped in the straight vinegar color, the surface bubbled. It turned out to be the protective coating and can affect the desired outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have always used the Wilton paste colors ever since the commercial products went "cold water." I still use hot water when I color eggs. In my opinion, it makes the colors deeper and more vibrant. With Wilton paste colors, the sky is the limit of the rainbow of colors you can use for the eggs. The best part of using the paste colors with hot water is this; if you volunteer to color eggs for your local egg hunt, you can cook the eggs AND color them at the same time! I was given 10 dozen eggs one year and had them done in no time AND they were the prettiest at the hunt. In fact, they were used as the "prize" eggs. Thank Wilton for making the best colors.
