Easy Peasy tip for getting sprinkles on side of cake - Page 2

post #16 of 27
That is excellent! I tried to freeze mine first, then roll it in a pile of them, but I think I had to squeeze too hard and I made my cake a little wonky.

This is a great tip! I know this is an older post but I have a question...Do the sprinkles bleed onto the sprayed wax paper? Maybe nonpareils don't bleed? help me out :)

Cake4court, I have the same question. I think sprinkle cakes look so cool but couldn't figure out how to get 'em on there. Thanks so much, thread starter, for posting this! :)

Thanks, this was a great tip!!!  I didn't have wax paper on hand but used aluminum foil and it worked fine!

 

To the person who asked about the sprinkles bleeding, mine didn't until I tried to mess with them too much.  The initial spray and picking them up was fine, but if I tried to use my hand to scoot them around on the cake at all they bled and ran.  Just for what its worth.  :)

Thanks Betccqlz! I'm doing a quickie gratis cake for mom to take to her dentist tomorrow :) so I get full design control... I'm going to try this!

A candy cake for a dentist - perfect!!!  How about putting some jawbreakers on top so he can put it out in his waiting room for repeat customers!!!  I know my dentist would laugh at that.  Me - I broke two teeth once on a single Red Hot Dot!  I will not eat that candy again!

Please post the finished product!

LOL theresaf!! Believe it or not I didn't take pictures of the whole cake... just didn't love it. I was using leftover icing (had only green, orange, and yellow) and the colors looked pathetic. But I took a picture of the side so I can tell my customers I'm doing this now... I ended up using nonpareils instead of sprinkles, and the sprayed parchment paper worked LIKE A CHARM!!! I'm thinking this may actually be FASTER than smoothing buttercream to a near-flawless finish.
