Can you use Cool Whip instead of shaving cream to dye eggs?

Is it better to dye eggs hot or cold?
Drain out the hot water, and fill the pot with cold water to stop the cooking process and make the eggs easier to handle. Grab your mugs or bowls and fill them with enough hot water to cover an egg completely. As a general rule, more dye and a longer dip time will result in a deeper egg color.
