How to Make Your Own Custom Sprinkles Mix

Making your own custom sprinkles mix is a great way to add a personal touch to your cakes and cupcakes. By using a variety of colours and shapes, you can create a unique blend that is perfect for any occasion.

One of the best things about creating your own mixes is that you get to create a totally unique look based on your own preferences. This gives your decorating a touch of flair and personality for something extra special. Once you’re happy with your mix selection, we bag them up!

There are a few things to keep in mind when making your own custom sprinkles mix. Here at Be Bold Bakes, we’re experts on all things sprinkles and cake decorating – so we’ve put together this guide of handy tips for you!

Tips for Mixing Sprinkle Colours

Start out by choosing your colours by considering the look you’re going for. By using a variety of colours for your mixes you’ll really make them pop, so you’ll need to make sure that they all coordinate well together. I actually love contrast colours - make them be their own gem in a hidden treasure of colours. 

We recommend choosing three colours that complement each other well, such as tiffany, navy and purple (how dreamy!) then i like to add a neutral like white, gold, silver, rose gold or black. We recommend 3-7 different sprinkles in one blend but in saying that you can choose for example pink and white, a few shapes in each colour. But of course, you’re only limited by your imagination.

Mixing Sprinkle Shapes

Next, you will need to choose the shapes of the sprinkles. You can use a variety of shapes, such as stars, hearts, triangles and much more. Include a mix of different sprinkle types in your mix – add a little bit of everything! This could include confetti, jimmies, nonpareils, and more.

Again, if you are using a variety of shapes, you will need to make sure that they all coordinate well together. Larger sprinkles pair well with softer, sugary jimmies for both aesthetic and texture.

We recommend using smaller sprinkles in abundance, whilst bigger ones make for ‘feature’ sprinkles. No one wants to bite into a cake with giant sugar pearls and only a dusting of sanding sugar! Balance is key!

How to Store Your Custom Sprinkle Mix

Once the sprinkles are selected and handmade by Be Bold Bakes, They will come in a pouch or jar that stores them perfectly. Sprinkles can last for several months if they are stored properly. Just keep them in their packaging or in air tight jars/containers if you have a matching system in your sprinkle cupboard. Now that you know how to make your own custom sprinkles mix, you can use it to decorate cakes, cupcakes, cookies or even ice cream!
