Homemade Sparkling Sugar Sprinkles

We have an 8th Birthday in our house next weekend. My daughter, like me, is inspired by all the beautiful images on Pinterest of wonderful, sparkly, beautiful cake creations on there, and has set her heart on having a beautiful purple birthday cake.

 

Super simple tutorial showing you how to make Sparkling Sugar Sprinkles at home cheaply. You can make a whole rainbow of colours. Such a fun activity for kids. Who doesn't love edible glitter! Perfect for making cakes, biscuits and cupcakes come alive.

 

Having spent 10 minutes in the local supermarket baking aisle with her over the weekend, declining to buy a basket full of goodies, I slightly rashly announced that we could easily make most of what she coveted at home! Turns out I was right (don't you love it when that happens!) Here is our super easy tutorial for making your own Sparkling Sugar Sprinkles in a whole rainbow of colours for pennies.

 You will need: Sugar (We used preserving; we like the large crystals, plus happen to have loads in the cupboard!), a selection of food colouring, jar and lid.

 We used food colour gels, but I think this would work with any sort of food colouring. Throw your sugar in the jar, and add a few drops of colouring.

 Pop on the lid, and give it a good shake. One of our gels was a little thick and didn't mix so well, so we simply added a couple of drops of water and gave it another good shake which evened it out.

 We then tipped our sugar into bowls, and left it for an hour in a warm place to completely dry out. Once dry we returned it to the jars for another shake to ensure it wasn't lumpy.

 Store it in a little jar, ready for use. We actually think it looks pretty enough to give away as gifts, and love the fact we can make any colour we want!

    Sarah, my daughter is the baker in the family, so I am pinning this for her. She always has me buying sprinkles for cookies and cakes, this way she can determine what color she wants and learn how to do it herself. And I’m sure it’s a fraction of the cost! Thanks!

      They are super quick and cheap to make Nikki, plus you can make exactly the shade you want. Turns out my daughter needs them in every shade!
