Food coloring helps to bring out the details in white mini pumpkins…
I gave a few white mini pumpkins the "Easter egg treatment" and soaked them in food coloring.
To make these you will need: white mini pumpkins, food coloring, bowls for soaking and a knife.
I bought old-fashioned food coloring in the baking supply aisle of my supermarket.
The exposed interior really grabs the dye, creating a nice contrast.
No need to core these – just cut out a face from the skin.
Follow instructions on food coloring package — it's the same as coloring eggs, just make a larger amount. Place your carved pumpkin in dye. I let mine soak for about 20 minutes; the longer you let it sit, the deeper the color.
Remove pumpkin from dye with a slotted spoon and tilt pumpkin over a bowl to drain any liquid that has collected inside. Let your pumpkin hang out on a paper towel to dry out for a bit.
