8 Easy Toppings for Cupcakes Day #2 Sprinkle Cupcakes

There are so many different colors of sprinkles and who can resist a colorful cupcake with sprinkles? Kids absolutely love them.

Day #2 Sprinkle Cupcakes

18 vanilla cupcakes
1 tub of vanilla frosting
various types of sprinkles
food color

Color the frosting the desired color.  For variety, divide the frosting into several small bowls and have several different colors.

Pour the sprinkles on a plate (or several different plates if you have more than one variety of sprinkles).

Frost one cupcake using a butter knife.

Roll the edges in sprinkles
Turn the frosted cupcake upside down and press lightly into the plate of sprinkles.  I've found this technique to work better than sprinkling the sprinkles on top of the cupcakes.

Repeat the same process with the next cupcake.

Another option for decorating with sprinkles is to just roll the edges of the cupcake in the sprinkles.

Have fun!
