I have to make homemade color coordinated sprinkles for 100 cupcakes. What do you think would be the best way to mass produce fondant sprinkles?
I was thinking of using my clay gun and extruding a thin line and then cutting it into sprinkle size. Any other possible ways of going about it?

Do they really need to be made of fondant? I think you'd get more replies with suggestions, if not.

I never even thought about hand making sprinkles. Your idea sounds like a good one though. Does your clay extruder have a disc that has alot of holes in it? You can squeeze out a bunch of lines of fondant at one time and then cut them into small sprinkle size pieces. Good luck!!!

Hopefully this link will work:

If not check out i am baker dot com and search for sprinkles.

The link isn't for fondant sprinkles, but if you're going to use glaze or royal icing, it's faster to pipe lines to chop rather than dots.

I've made them before with a scrapbook punch. A very small plunger cutter works too...a little better than the scrapbook punch. You can also use a herb mincer to make tiny squares, or just a wheel cutter and make lots of lines.

Use a clay roller to roll your fondant out, then use your round icing tip to cut small circles out. This goes very quickly. This is the same method I use to make my pearls for my cakes. It helps make uniform size pearls.
