How to color your own Sprinkles

Pin It

I'm kind of a Sprinkle hoarder.
I have them stashed everywhere.

Holiday mixes, shapes or solids I love them all.
Sprinkles make me happy.

What doesn't make me happy is when I need a particular color and I can't find it anywhere :(

What's a cupcake sprinkle lovin' girl to do??
Color them herself - that's what!

Here's what you need to color your own sprinkles:

white sprinkles
Wilton icing colors
plastic ziploc baggies

Put your desired amount of white sprinkles into a ziploc baggie.
Dip a toothpick into the icing color and rub a little onto the inside of the baggie.
Remember not to add too much.  You can always add more if you need to.
Feel free to get creative and design your own colors.
Close the plastic baggie and shake. 
Gently rub them around with your fingers until all of the sprinkles are colored.
Next unzip the plastic baggie and leave it open for the sprinkles to air dry before using or storing.
I left mine overnight, but a hour or so should do the trick.

Note for you local sprinkle lovers - I buy my white sprinkles at Sharp Shopper or the Dayton Farmers Market.  You can get a good size container for cheap.

Sprinkles are my fave :)
