Yes, I made Sprinkles at home...
it seems slightly wacky
but just look at how fun they are!
It is a little time consuming,
but it's easy and you are totally in control of the colors.
I sifted together powdered sugar and corn starch...
then divided the batter into bowls and mixed in
Wilton Icing Colors...
the icing went into a piping bags, with the smallest tip I have
(these are for the "jimmie" sprinkles, just snap them into little bits)
let them dry for 8 to 10 hours and
Sprinkle like Crazy!
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons milk
Wilton Icing Colors or Food Coloring in your choice of colors
To make the sprinkle batter, sift together the confectioners’ sugar and cornstarch so that there are no lumps. Slowly mix in the milk until you reach a thick enough consistency to pipe (similar to frosting). At this point, separate the batter into small bowls and color each differently with the food coloring. You should have enough for 4 bowl approx 2 tablespoons each.
Put icing into pastry bag with 1/16" pastry tip.
Pipe icing into dots or lines onto parchment paper and let dry at least 8 hours.
and this is how I made the hearts...
