How to make Sprinkles - easy homemade sprinkles that will jazz up your cakes and cupcakes

How to Make Sprinkles (Bold Baking Basics)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Did you know you could make your own Homemade Sprinkles?

When I made my own Homemade Fondant I ended up with leftovers that I didn’t want to waste. So I colored it, rolled it out and made my own Homemade Sprinkles, it was that easy! Learn how in the video and post below.

I couldn’t waste all of this fondant so I looked around online to see what I could do with it. And that is when I discovered how to make Homemade Sprinkles!How to make sprinkles, homemade sprinkles, sprinkles, how to decorate a cake, how to make homemade sprinkles

Color and shape the fondant any color you want depending on your baking project. Maybe you just want some pink sprinkles for a baby shower? Then you can create different shades of pink in cute shapes.

I rolled out all of my fondant and cut it into sprinkles with a simple piping tip, because even if I don’t need it now I have it on hand for any “Cake Emergency” where I need a splash of elegance and color in a hurry. Best thing is they will last for months in an airtight container.

Every cake needs sprinkles. They elevate the look of your cake, add color and always make desserts automatically look better.

I have expressed before that I am not a great cake decorator so I like to use little tricks to get big results, like using a butter knife to decorate my Funfetti Cake cake or the back of a spoon to decorate my Best Ever Chocolate Cake. Adding these Sprinkles on top transformed my dessert from a regular cake to a cake that screams celebration!

The best thing is you can make the color you want for your desserts and the exact shapes you need. It’s great to tell people you made your cake from scratch, including the sprinkles! I mean, who does that? We do on Bigger Bolder Baking! :)

    Hi Gemma! I have been looking threw all your many, many, many videos recently and have really enjoyed them. All of your creations are big and bold. Sprinkles out of fondant! That is so cool, so now I can make my own fondont for cakes then use the scraps for sprinkles, instead of taking time to buy sprinkles. Just to let you know, I have tried your minute mug cakes. I have tried the funfetti one and loved it! I have also tried your no-machine ice cream. I thought it was really big and bold. Keep your effort up, it’s amazing!

    Hi Gemma! I am a professional baker in NY and I have been learning for about 6 yrs ( I went to culinary school). I currently am trying to find great recipe for the best homemade samoas or thin mints (Trying to honor girl scouts lol). If you can’t do it, its fine, but please add it to your list! Also, next month we need to make fortune cookies for a nearby Chinese restaurant. Our cookies are loosing the crisp after keeping them out for 2-3 weeks, and now we are getting some complaints! Can you please share some recipes for this?

    Don’t worry- I’ll give you credit for the recipes 🙂 lol

  60. Meghana Vinjamury on May 6, 2016 at 7:56 pm

    Hi Gemma,
    I love this video I’m allergic to any things and am scared to eat sprinkles from the store.
    This is amazing to me, Thank You

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 8, 2016 at 3:06 pm

      aw that’s really fantastic! i’m delighted to hear you like them 🙂

  61. Munira on May 8, 2016 at 12:46 pm

    Hi Gemma,

    Greetings from Tanzania (East Africa)!
    I have just recently started watching your videos, and I absolutely love them… I am going to college this year.. so your minute mug meals will definitely be a popular with me!!! Also I really appreciate you considering that some of your viewers, like my self, live in countries where some items (e.g. apple sauce, gram crackers) are not available and therefore you suggest substitutes.

    Thanks once again,
    P.S Kevin’s editing is so on point. 😀

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 8, 2016 at 3:12 pm

      Thank you so much Munira, I’m really delighted you liked them.

      We don’t get those ingredients in Ireland either so I know how frustrating it is when you don’t know if you can substitute them.

      I’ll pass you note onto Kevin, he will be delighted :).

  62. Alina on May 24, 2016 at 5:25 am

    Gemma, I love your videos and the way you talk through the recipes! Can you please make some low fat desserts (with as less butter/cream as possible)? I am sure you’ll make them beautiful and delicious as usual. Love to your family from mine ?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 24, 2016 at 8:33 am

      Hi Alina,
      Thank you for your good wishes, I appreciate them.
      I know, I do not really pay too much attention to the fat content of the recipes, just the quality of the ingredients.
      There are substitutions which can be made in order to change the fat content of the recipes. However, I prefer to use butter for instance, as it is a natural product, margarine has too many ingredients for my taste! Low fat milk can be used in lots of the recipes, and nut milk can also work for some.
      I am in the process of updating my website, I will add further information re substitutions there,
      Gemma 🙂

  63. Kari on May 28, 2016 at 2:51 am

    Hi gemma I’m a big fan of urs…..
    Actually I need to throw a party as I have topped the state academic exams to all my friends…. The theme is neon and I wish if u could help me with neon eggless cupcakes…I live in india..so all ingredients are nt available to me so please suggest alternatives…..

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on May 30, 2016 at 8:12 am

      Hi Kari,
      This is a tough one! I cannot advise you as I do not know what colors you have available to you. I have a rainbow cake here on my website, you could use this recipe, adding whatever usual egg substitute you use. This is not my special area of baking, so you probably know better than me! Applesauce, flaxseeds, buttermilk, banana are the usual suspects,
      Gemma 🙂

  67. Christian Craig on July 10, 2016 at 1:12 am

    Could you also roll out the fondant cut into strips the have longer pieces

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2016 at 1:42 am

      Hi Christian,
      Yes you can, you can cut into any shape to dry, flowers, butterflies, strips etc. You can pick up shape cutters in lots of places including dollar stores, art supply shops, kitchen/cook shops etc. Amazon are a great source of all things cookery wise too!
      Gemma 🙂

  68. Kip on August 8, 2016 at 11:01 am

    Hello! I recently found out I am dairy and gluten free. I love love love to bake, but due to my allergies, I am lost. I was known for my cookies, and now I do not know what to substitute. I also tried to make a mug cake before I was sick and it was still liquid on the bottom. Do you have to make it in a certain mug?? Thank you 🙂

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on August 8, 2016 at 1:01 pm

      Hi Kip,
      I am sorry to hear that your diet is being restricted. it is hard at first, but you will find your way. check out this website (www.chefinyou.com) for lots of good non dairy recipes, and this one which covers both (http://www.peta.org/living/food/gluten-free-vegan-recipes/). This will be a learning curve for you!
      I use a small mug/cup, 6 – 8oz capacity, with a wide mouth for east distribution of heat,
      Gemma 🙂

    HI GEMMA ! how long can ive store it in a jar ?

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on September 18, 2016 at 6:19 am

      Hi Malin, thank you for your kind comments, it is great to have you with us.
      These will dry out, and as long as they are stored in a cool dry place they will last for months. Gemma 🙂

  72. Christian on October 10, 2016 at 10:27 pm

    Hi! I love sprinkles. They just finish anything off! I came here from a mug meal recipe and I wanted to ask you if You could make a microwave jam tart? Thanks 😃

    • Profile photo of Gemma Stafford Gemma Stafford on October 11, 2016 at 1:32 am

      Hi Christian,
      Pastry is difficult in the microwave as it needs the heat to make it pop, and crisp.
      There are some mug recipes which may suit you, donut, and cookie recipes come to mind. Do check through these, there are lots!
      Pop tarts are great, and can be baked in a toaster oven if you have one of these. not a bread toaster though!
      Thank you for bring with us,
      Gemma 🙂
