can anyone tell me what these white sprinkles are called in these pics?



they don't really look like non-pareils because they are aren't very round, and they don't look like coloured sugar because they are opaque?

strange...my first thought was just that it was white royal icing with a very small tip.

if they are sprinkles...i've never seen any like them.

Looks like Royal Icing to me. I did something like that on my Christmas cookies.

To me they look like they are silver dragees. Here is a link to a place that sells them.

Looks like "Pearl Sugar" to me.

It is definately royal icing. You should use a very small tip and make a bunch of small dots clustered together.

Yes, tujy is right. It is from King Arthur flour. I have it. It is great for winter/christmas time because it looks like snow. I think used it on my stocking cookie (in my pics one of the last cookies - in a group of xmas cookies). Anyway, that's what it is.

Yes looks like pearl sugar. I bought it at Ikea. I have it covering a cake in my photos.

It's definitely pearl sugar. King Arthur Flour. $5.95 for a 1-lb bag. Love that stuff!
