Hey all-

Need a little help with a charity Easter event for about 100 kids. I am going to make the cupcakes and icing, and provide the "sprinkles" as part of this event. Can you guys recommend a source for large amounts of the edibles? I know half will be on the floor (OK, grass) and half in their mouth before it hits the cake. Suggestions please? TIA

I love Avalondeco also. BakeryCrafts and Ck Products also have them.

thanks again all---- I just can't buy $100 worth of them for this one event (I am no pro, just hobbyist). I was just trying to get away from $5 a bottle!

Any suggestions appreciated. Darn- I may just have to play with royal icing and wax paper and make some-ugh! I was hoping to get away with sprinkles of sorts, but for the kiddos, I want something special, you know?

Do you have a Smart & Final or a Cash & Carry near you? I've found large jars of both chocolate jimmies and assorted non pareils for about $5-$6. They have about 2 cups in each container.

Nope--- not here in Austin. I loved Smarts when I was in LA....

Austin, TX? Sounds crazy, but check the dollar stores or Big Lots. They can sell the large bottles of sprinkles cheaply.

Most of the local grocery stores have them as well. They are in the area with the spices.

Do you have a wholesale club nearby? I go to BJ's they have huge containers cheap but I'd imagine costco and Sam's club also would have them.

What about asking for donations? Like maybe a store would donate the sprinkles to the event in exchange for some publicity...?

(Or even go to a church and ask people to donate one jar each?)

Just a thought...target usually has small/medium sized containers of holiday themed sprinkles in their SPOT $1 bins. Maybe that would be cheaper....?

You can get a 6 lb. box from www.fondantsource.com for about $13 - lots of colors available.
Sanding sugars are about $18 for an 8 lb. box.

Better selection than places like Costco, Target, etc. and prices are pretty good.
