Homemade Sprinkles

Have you ever wondered what to do with leftover ROYAL ICING after finishing a batch of cookies? I don't remember where I saw this first but it's brilliant.

You can use the icing to make SPRINKLES! 

It's super easy but, admittedly, a little tedious. Of course if you have the patience to decorate cookies, this isn't too far off from that. 

All you have to do is get a piece of wax paper and pipe dots of icing onto it. 

You can pipe LARGE DOTS or small dots

Multi-colored dots or all one color.

These sprinkles were made with mostly tip #1 and one color was tip #2.

Once they dried, I just wrinkled the wax paper over a bowl and the sprinkles just fell off. 

You can use them on cakes, cupcakes, or ice cream. Because they are royal icing, they can be stored in an air tight container for a long time.

Ice cream sundae anyone?
