Easter is a week away and there are so many fun Easter inspired recipes that I love making this time of year. I have a six year old little girl and she really loves helping me in the kitchen. Today, we made these pastel deviled eggs and I loved how they came out. These pastel deviled eggs were so fun to make with her because she loves deviled eggs and experimenting with food coloring. I followed my traditional deviled egg recipe but dyed the egg whites with food coloring to get these pretty pastel colors. I used red, green, yellow and blue food coloring but the blue food coloring that I used didn't really dye the egg as much as I wanted it to. The other colors worked great. You only need a 1/2 cup of water, a plastic cup and some food coloring to make these beautiful pastel deviled eggs. It is important to not allow the egg whites to sit in the food coloring too long so you get a pretty pastel color. The pink and green turned the fastest but the yellow took a little longer. You cannot taste the food coloring at all.
In order to fill my eggs, I used a tool that I purchased from Amazon which works great for this recipe and for topping cupcakes. The tool is the Wilton Cake Decorating tool and it is so easy to use and clean.
