heart sprinkles


Homemade sprinkles are certainly not an innovation of this blog. I’ve seen tons all over the web. If memory serves correctly (and I’m lucky my memory is recorded over at my other gig),  these rainbow sprinkles from Brave Tart were my first introduction to the DIY sprinkle.


I had some leftover bags of red, pink and white icing (I use my royal icing HERE). So I just fitted the bags of icing with size “3” decorating tips, lined a baking tray with parchment paper, piped a whole bunch of mini hearts, and let them dry at room temperature overnight. That’s it. Homemade heart sprinkles.



Sprinkle these over ice cream, cupcakes, brownies, cookies, whatever. I dabbed a bit of light corn syrup on the back and stuck one on a marshmallow.

    You could also roll out fondant real thin, let the sheet dry for a bit, then use a heart-shaped hole punch to punch out little hearts. Let the hearts dry thoroughly before storing. You can use different hole punches for different shapes.

      I’ve done that, too, Laurel! such a great idea because you can make shapes. And it looks smoother than the piped stuff.
