I frosted 2-3 cupcakes then tried sprinkling them on, and they just bounced off. I ended up having to roll the cupcakes in the sprinkles, and they stuck.

Or should I switch to just the hi ratio?Will a whipped icing hold up, too? How about a faux swiss meringue made with marshmallow creme and hi ratio? (the recipe actually calls...
ooh, good idea! thank you!
hello! I have a bride that is requesting I put a tiara on top of some of my buckeye candies for her wedding favors. The buckeye is only about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter. How in the world would I make one of these things? I could do a flat one, but how would I do one standing up?Help please!Maria
