Don't just stop at the batter and frosting when you're baking, because sprinkles are easy to make-at-home, too. Just a few simple ingredients from your pantry and a knack for mixing food coloring will give you jimmies, dots, and even hearts to have on hand for decorating any labor of love you've just baked up.

Click here for a step by step guide on how to make your own sprinkles at home.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • Food coloring

DIRECTIONS

To make the sprinkle batter, sift together the confectioners’ sugar and cornstarch until there are no lumps. Slowly add the milk until you reach a thick enough consistency to pipe (similar to frosting). This will give you about ½ cup batter. At this point, separate the batter into small bowls if different colors are prefered, and color each differently with the food coloring.

To make jimmies: Using a 1/16-inch pastry tip for your pastry bag, pipe out long lines (in various colors) of the batter onto a parchment lined-baking sheet. Let the batter harden completely (about 24 hours), and then cut into jimmy-sized sprinkles, about ¼-inch thick.

To make circles: Using the same pastry tip, pipe out rows of dots (in various colors) and let dry.

To make hearts: Using the same pastry tip, draw tiny hearts onto the parchment.
