  • Use a rolling pin to roll out marshmallow fondant or store-bought fondant on a smooth surface sprinkled with powdered sugar.You can also mix some gum paste or some tylose powder with your fondant so that your sprinkles dry faster.Let this rolled fondant sit for 10 minutes and become a little dry (I felt the next step became easier when I did this).
  • Press Wilton’s decorating tip 12 into fondant and make tiny circle cut outs.
  • Place these circles on a sheet of wax paper.Let them dry for 24 hours or until they have completely hardened.The drying time will vary, based on where you live and your weather conditions. Once they are dry, put these sprinkles in a ziploc bag, jar or plastic container and store them at room temperature, away from moisture, humidity and sunlight.
  • If you want to make oval shaped sprinkles, use Wilton’s decorating tip 230 and follow the same steps as above.
  • If you want to make raindrop shaped sprinkles, use Wilton’s decorating tip 104 and follow the same steps as above.I found these ones to be the coolest!


  • DO NOT pack up these sprinkles before they have completely dried up and hardened.
  • DO NOT store these sprinkles in the fridge!
