Helpful Hints: Decorating with Sprinkles

When I’m decorating with sprinkles, I like to frost first and then dip to ensure maximum sprinkle cover. What can I say? I love sprinkles and other decorations! That said, they can be messy to work with and a pain to clean up.

Here are a few of the things I keep in mind when I’m using those lovely little colored treats:IMG_3950

  • When you’re pouring the sprinkles onto a plate or dish to dip your cupcakes into?
    Pour low to avoid them bouncing everywhere!
  • If you’re dipping frosted items into sprinkles?
    Allow it to set for a few minutes so you don’t end up with wet frosting in your sprinkle dish!
  • If you’re sprinkling onto wet frosting?
    Do so with your fingers, not so far above the frosted item so they don’t go all over.
    Alternately, put all the frosted items into a foil cake baking dish and it will collect the rogue sprinkles and keep (most of) them off your floor

And remember that you can use things other than sprinkles for decorating! Mini chips, little candies, nuts, sugar and spices…there are many possibilities to try.

What do you like to decorate with that’s not a sprinkle?
