Recipe Notes

This is going to make a gazillion sprinkles so if you want other sprinkles you can keep aside some and add different colour and make different sprinkles. 

If the consistency is not thick enough and feels runny, add and whisk 2-3 tablespoons or more of icing sugar depending on the consistency. 

Happy Sprinkles!!
