Sprinkles are one of my favorite decorations in baking. I recently started making my own sprinkles
and it's so much easier than you might think. Plus you get to make whatever colors and color combos you'd like.
Here's my recipe for homemade sprinkles:
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 tbls light corn syrup
2 tbls water
Mix together 1 cup of the powdered sugar and the water and corn syrup. Add the additional 1/2 cup powdered sugar gradually until you get the right consistency. It needs to be pipe-able and not too runny or too thick. Separate into as many portions as you need for the colors you are going to use. Using small piping bags or ziploc bags with the corner cut off, pipe in straight lines on parchment paper. You can also make little dots. Let dry overnight then break up and store in an airtight container.
