So I sent the link to my mom thinking it would be a fun project to do together!  I also had a "Girl's Day" pink [everything] themed dinner coming up - what a perfect occasion to dye the eggs pink!   (I would also like to add that a pink everything themed dinner was fairly difficult to think up food options. More on that later.) So here's my cake in an egg process: I used an old school wine opener (my mom's) to puncture a tiny hole at the bottom of the egg then picked off the surrounding shell to make a hole, a
