Make your own sprinkles and make a little happiness.Then bottle it up into little jars of joy up to share with someone sweet.
I’ve wanted to try making my own sprinkles for like ever. Well, I finally got around to it – inspired by my baking buddy Rosie of Sweetapolita and her amazing sprinkle shop . If you’re looking for whimsical color combos and magical medleys, then check out her site asap.
But if you’re curious about creating your own like me, then give them a go one day. It’ll make you feel good.
You’ll need a batch of royal icing to get started. I used Rosie’s recipe from her Sweetapolita Bakebook  which was perfecto!
I divided the icing into four equal parts…
… and then tinted three of the parts with icing color.
Use a No. 2 decorating tip to pipe lines of royal icing close together onto wax paper.
Repeat with each color.
That’s a whole lot of lines.
Let the piped royal icing dry for several hours or overnight.
Sidenote: Right about here, with my hand cramping from piping so long, I was like I am never doing this again.
But, by the next day I was over that because breaking the lines of royal icing up into little pieces is pretty satisfying when you see them turn into sprinkles. Or as some call them … jimmies … when they’re shaped like this.
I have to say I had a big smile on my face.
I mean look at those colors!
That’s the best part. You can customize them into any color you need.
So super satisfying!!!!
At least once, anyway. Ha! So glad I gave these a try, though!
