Works for me Wednesday

We had a birthday party for Josiah on Sunday. He wanted cupcakes with sprinkles. I started out sprinkling the sprinkles on (isn't that why they call them sprinkles?). The sprinkles didn't stick. They looked horrible, and sprinkles were going everywhere! Then I thought, why not just dip the cupcakes into the sprinkles? So, I tried it. I turned each cupcake upside down into the bowl of sprinkles, and gave it a little turn. It worked perfectly! The cupcakes were covered in sprinkles...and they actually stuck. So, next time you make cupcakes with sprinkles, dip the cupcakes...don't sprinkle.(The cupcake on the bottom was sprinkled, the two on the top were dipped).
(These are leftovers that are a couple of days old...that's why the frosting is missing and the one has extra pieces of cake on it!)

  1. Great tips! Love your blog!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have the same problem...will have to try your idea! Thank you. :) And, I desperately want a cupcake now! lol...those look YUMMY

  3. Looks yummy.

    I was having the same problem until I realized that sometimes the sprinkles are not sticking because the frosting has already started to set. So now I sprinkle each cupcake right after I frost it... works much better!

    Never thought to dip them, though. I'll have to try that next time!

  4. Great tip, but now I want a cupcake too.


Let me know what you're thinking!!
