Homemade Rainbow Sprinkles Cake

filed under: Miscellaneous on March 2, 2011

I absolutely adore how sprinkles look on cakes and cupcakes, but have had the WORST time trying to find some that actually taste good!

Lucky you, I slaved away in my kitchen until I found the perfect solution.

Make your own!

(I have seen this done many times before, but I found a way to make it easier and something that anyone can do!)


Rainbow colors of course.

Then, throw them onto a cake and wow everyone with the amazing taste and texture!

I have a pretty bad case of Spring Fever, so this cake was just the burst of color I needed to brighten my day!

    I like the spaces of white with the pops of color.
    And I DO want to know how to make my own sprinkles.
    The ones I find always taste stale. Yuck,
    I think I’ll try this whole thing in cupcake form, test your recipe for that.
    Perhaps it will quell my own spring fever.
    Thanks for sharing!

    So sweet- do you think they could be baked into a white cake to make rainbow sprinkles inside the cake?

    Can these sprinkles be stored? If so for how long? I would like to make this and prepare the sprinkles ahead of time.

  • grace says:

    there are far too few god-made rainbows for my tastes, so i’m all for a woman-made one now and then. 🙂

  • Diane {createdbydiane.blogspot.com} says:

    so pretty! Great idea. I’ve tried making long lines and breaking them up, my kids think they are fun. Yours look beautiful!
    Loved seeing you on your frosting video, 9 months? Hmmm….I forgot when you are due, I know a few people due in a couple weeks 🙂 exciting. Did you decide on a name yet?
    You look amazing and a natural in front of the camera. If that is you nervous, you pull it off well. I turn beet red 🙂

  • Ariana says:

    I love all of your ideas! You’re so creative!! And I’m a sucker for rainbows so I think I will be trying this out for sure!
    Also, I was wondering what kind of camera you have, you take such beautiful, clear pictures. I’m a pastry student and I do cakes on the side. I would looove to know your thoughts on any good cameras. The camera I have is so outdated and takes horrible pictures. If you could let me know I’d really appreciate it, keep up the great work, thanks!
