Have you ever made cupcakes or cake pops for a party and wished you had sprinkles that matched your theme?

I know custom colored sprinkles can be found on Etsy and Amazon, but sometimes they’re still not exactly what you were looking for and you don’t really get much of it either… or worse, you’re in a time crunch and don’t know if it will arrive in time.

Psst…wanna know a secret?

You can buy white sprinkles from you nearest hobby shop and custom tint them yourself to be exactly what color you need!
