I got the idea for this tutorial when I was in the baking aisle at Jewel. I love colorful sprinkles but I find those teeny tiny bottles of sprinkles to be totally over-priced!
So, make them yourself. It's cheap and easy.
Roll out colorful marshamllow fondant on a smooth, greased surface . Let this rolled fondant sit for 10 minutes and become a little dry. I felt the next step became easier when I did this.
Press Wiltonâ€™s decorating tip 12 into fondant and make tiny circle cut outs.
Let these circles dry for 24 hours and then put them in a bottle and store in your cabinet at room temperature. DO NOT store them in the fridge.
If you want to make oval shaped sprinkles, use Wiltonâ€™s decorating tip 230 and follow the same steps as above.
And if you want to make raindrop shaped sprinkles, use Wiltonâ€™s decorationg tip 104 and follow the same steps as above. I found these ones to be the coolest!
So, what are you waiting for?
Dress up your cupcakes in these homemade COLORFUL sprinkles :D
