Here's what you'll need (clockwise from left):
- food-use only ruler
- small sprinkles or nonpareils (available at most crafts stores)
- piping gel (available at most crafts stores)
- small flexible cup
- petal dust in desired shade (we like Crystal Colors brand)
- food-use only paintbrush
- ziplock bag
Remove shaker cap from sprinkles.
Empty into ziplock bag.
Pour a small amount of petal dust into bag. (Remember you can always add more, so start with a little).
Shake the bag until dust is evenly distributed and desired depth of color is achieved.
Using tapemeasure, determine the spacing and width of stripes.
Dip paintbrush in piping gel.
Using ruler as a guide to acheive a straight line, brush a generous amount of piping gel onto cake with short, even strokes.
Repeat on the right side of line.
Empty colored sprinkles into small cup.
Gently pour sprinkles onto cake.
You will have many extra sprinkles. Pour onto a sheet of parchment creased in the middle and pour back into small cup. Repeat process until all lines are finished.
Enjoy your chic, striped creation!
