I love these! It's sort of like making your own candy buttons, too! Good creativity! We have spring fever, too, and will be trying these soon!

megan @ whatmegansmaking

cute as always! Although I personally love traditional rainbow sprinkles too :)


Seriously adorable!!


What a seriously GREAT idea, especially for when I want a color that isn't the norm...Thanks :)


what a fabulous idea!! I love it!


Cute! :)

Amanda, you're my hero!! These are EXACTLY what I was looking for!!! I needed something I could use as "rocks" for an aquarium cake I'm making and this will be PERFECT! Good job!


Thanks so much for sharing this great idea. I love the fact that I can make then in any color I want.


Here a Sprinkle, there a Sprinkle, everywhere a Sprinkle! What a GRrrrrreat idea! My grandaughter will love this. I can barely wait until the weekend so I can bake!

Jessica @ How Sweet

You know I love my sprinkles!! So pretty.


The AOL Kitchen Team knows talent when they see it!


I love your blog!!!!


Totally brilliant - you are so creative! xo


Wow, I never even imagined making my own sprinkles. Your cake looks so pretty! Thanks for the great link, Amanda! I've never been to Kitchen Daily and I like it:)


This is fantastic! I have always disliked the flavor, too. I want to make my own sprinkles now.

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

Homemade sprinkles?! That's genius, I'm headed over now to check it out.

Homemade sprinkles?? Great idea & such a pretty cake. I will go check it out over at Kitchen Daily.


This really brightened my day. I mean, it truly did. I needed that burst of color. Thank you my friend for sharing your talent!! The cake is gorgeous!


Amanda, what a fantastic idea, making your own sprinkles! I can't wait to try it. And, this cake is so lovely...a perfect burst of color for spring!


Great idea and wonderful photos!


I made homemade sprinkles once out of leftover marshmallow fondant. Yours are very pretty & colorful :)


Beauttiful! as always! so clever and pretty! x


This is amazing. Would they work well INSIDE a cake? I get orders for confetti cupcakes all the time and this would be so much cheaper then always buying sprinkles!

you are everywhere, girlfriend! I love seeing you spaning the virtual globe. So proud to call you my friend! x

Simply beautiful looks delicious!


wow,that's so clever! Definitely trying this!



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!

It really looks so lovely! Thanks for sharing this rainbow cake of yours. :D


This is so darn pretty...and ur in big trouble for telling me I can make sprinkles! Who knew! Bernie is going to faint when he hears that's on my to do list!


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

bridget {bake at 350}

Is there anything you CAN'T do?!?!?!?


Dude. You are my hero.


This is a beautiful cake. I've filed your picture under "inspiration". Thanks!


THANK YOU so much for the how-to on the sprinkles!!! You've just taken my cake/cupcake decorating to a new level. You're AWESOME!


Love the rainbow cake, but I am still back on those pancakes. Good Lord. How divine!


LOVE IT!! I hate that storebought ones taste like chalk, so I can't wait to try these!

Jen @ My Kitchen Addiction

So pretty! There's just something about sprinkles that always makes me smile :)


Such a festive cake, Amanda!


YUM! Is there anything you can't do? I'm starting to think not :)


You are a baking beast!!!!! You know I mean that in a good way, right?!! LOL

meaghan (the decorated cookie)

Gorgeous, brilliant, amazing. Love it! (I posted a link on ediblecrafts.craftgossip.com)

Lauren Adeline

Delightful! Thank you for sharing!

Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles

You NEVER cease to amaze me. I would never have even dreamed about making my own sprinkles!! They are so much fun - love the look!


these sprinkles are fantastic! nice work :)


So amazing! I will definitely have to make these soon :)


What a great idea !!!

I sant to try but I don¡t know how must I mix the ingredientes. Do I heat syrup and milk and then add sugar?

Tahnk you for everything you share with us !!!


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


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}

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 :)


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!
