Tools You Will Need:
Sugar/Gum Paste (Colors of Your Choice)
Powdered Sugar or Cornstarch
Icing Tips / Cookie or Fondant Cutters <—— Different Sizes and Shapes for variety
Step 1: Dust your work surface with either powdered sugar or cornstarch.
Step 2: Roll out the sugar/gum paste of equal thickness. Using rolling pin rings will help you get an equal thickness all around.
Step 3: Take your desired icing tip (any shape and size) and make cuts on the paste.
Step 4: Let the “sprinkles” dry for at least 5 hours, or until you touch them, and they hold their shape.
You can make any design you chose, by using different cutters.
Storage: Once dry, the “sprinkles” should be placed in an air tight container. They will last for months. If you have a special event of party theme coming up, you ca make your sprinkles ahead of time, saving you time to make other desserts.
** Flavor Notes: Sugar/Gum paste, especially store bought, tend to be already flavored with a light vanilla taste. However, if you want, you can flavor them with extracts and oils, such as LorAnn Oils. If possible, make your own sugar/gum paste and flavor it. Ever have Cotton Candy flavored sprinkles? Well now you can.**
