      We order our sprinkles from several sources. A good selection can be found at Country Kitchen Sweetarts If we don't have the correct color on hand for a design, we also tint our own. It's easy to do. Just place white sprinkles in a freezer weight bag. Add a few drops of food coloring, zip it shut, and give it a vigorous shake. You may need to massage the sprinkles to further distribute the food coloring. Then spread the sprinkles out on a sheet of wax paper to dry. In about 15 minutes they are ready to use. You can also store them in an airtight container to use later.

      Happy cupcaking,

      Because the veggies are assembled on the top of the cupcake, and you use frosting to secure them, you will need to do it when you decorate your cupcakes. However. You could assemble the veggies using royal frosting since it hardens. Just make them on a sheet of wax paper and store them in an airtight container in a cool place for up to a week.

      Sounds like geniosity, thanks for asking!

We would love to hear from you. But we have to ask you to please copy the annoying mixed up text so we can be sure you are a person. Unfortunately that's the only way we have to weed out all the crazy robot SPAM. I hope robots don't learn to copy wavy text anytime soon!
