I love sprinkles.

Okay that is an UNDERSTATEMENT …. I LOVE Sprinkles especially the REALLY colorful ones

Did you know you can make your own sprinkles at home. I heard of this a while back and decided to try it — and I am SO excited to tell you it works. The sprinkles are a fraction of the cost of store bought sprinkles

The recipe is seriously easy enough for kids to help you make

The possibilities of sizes and colors are REALLY endless – plus if you keep the sprinkles in an airtight container they are good for an entire year!

Everything you need is above!!! Can you believe you can make sprinkles out of fondant. Fondant can be found in the cake section at Michaels – pair it with a coupon and you are all set. Even if you do not have a coupon this will cost less than buying sprinkles at the store and will seriously impress EVERYONE!

You will also see the frosting tips I bought – I found they are the perfect size for sprinkles. Feel free to get any size or shape you want

The recipe is simple as rolling out the fondant, punching out sprinkles with the frosting tip, and letting them dry


So easy I was watching a movie (  Planes) while making them – double tasking lady right here!

Now let’s see some final products
