    Design the perfect Sixlet Cupcake is easy with my tried and true formula!

    Seriously the easiest way to decorate cupcakes and so stinkin delicious!

    I noticed that I have been using a lot, a lot of sixlets in my cupcake designs lately. So I figured why not put them all together and show YOU how to do it too!

    I happen to have a lot of Sixlet’s candies on hand and store them in my Sprinkles Cabinet. I like to buy them from amazon in  larger quantities as it is MUCH cheaper.

    I LOVE how easy they are. This was decorated with an 8B tip and then the sixlets were added to one side.

    One thing you may have noticed in all of these designs is that it is a variation of sizes of sprinkles.

    How to Make the PERFECT Sixlet Cupcake!

    My formula for these cupcakes is simple:

    sixlets

    medium round (these are called pearlized sprinkles, pearl sprinkles, candy beads, or pearl gems)

    round sprinkles often called nonpareils

    My SECRET tip to the perfectly decorated cupcake!

    nonpareils

    The combination of these three sizes really makes for a beautiful juxtaposition. You can also add in some disco dust or edible glitter for a fun effect!

    Assembling them is beyond easy. Gather the sprinkles of choice (I am a big fan of a color theme or making these with a special occasion in mind, like New Years.) and start by placing the sixlets on the cupcake. Then add the next smallest size or the medium pearl gems. Finally, sprinkle some of the nonpareils over the top!

    I have a little video from facebook where I show how to assemble.

    I used my white cupcake recipe and my chocolate cupcakes in these images. I used my favorite whipped vanilla buttercream to pipe. (I love the 8B tip for Sixlets Cupcakes!)

    You’re so creative! Can you please share the manufacturer of the 88 tip you used? Thanks so much!

      Its 8B (eightB) and I think it was Bakery Crafts.

    Where do you order your sixlets/sprinkles from? I love the colours.

    Another winning tutorial I read and wished I could replicate! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

    Thank you for your tutorials and recipes. I used your recipes for my icing for Wedding cupcakes and they were perfect!

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
