Inspired by Sprinkles – Sweet Dessert Ideas

There’s something distinctly festive about these multicoloured strands of sugariness! Perfect for your wedding bash or a New Year’s shindig, they’ll have you and your guests beaming from ear to ear and will help set the celebratory tone. Cover your cupcakes with these coloured strands, douse your cookies with them or sprinkle over cake pops for a dessert table with a difference. Or if you want a full on flash of colour (and the ultimate sugar rush), pour them all over your cake tiers!

You don’t have to restrict these candy cuties to New Year’s either, if you’re having a spring or summer wedding party, break out the ice cream cones and shower them with these colourful strands for a nostalgic dessert option. Ice cream shots in mason jars or your own signature cocktails complete with colourful rims (see image below – yum!) would also go down a treat with your wedding guests.
