Need sprinkles of a specific color, but know you won't be able to find them at your local store? Let's face it...shopping there usually means chocolate or rainbow or some strange mix of colors to suit the next upcoming holiday. The solution? Color your own!
How? First, stock up on plain white sprinkles (you can usually find them on amazon.com or a bakery supply website). Second, fill a jar with the white sprinkles and add powdered food coloring or "petal dust" and shake. Viola! Custom colored sprinkles in seconds!
