12 of the Prettiest (and Tastiest) Edible Cake Decorations
Why settle for basic jimmies or sprinkles when you can go over the top with your cake decorations? We've found a dozen of our favorite sprinkles and other edible toppings to snazz up any dessert.
Crazy Sprinkle Blends
Sometimes one kind of sprinkle isn’t enough. That’s when you need to grab one of Fancy Sprinkles’ crazy decoration blends like this one ($8). These mixes combine jimmies, quins, dragees and more to create over the top decorations that can take any treat to the next level.
Love our unicorn cake recipe? Who doesn’t? But if you want to get some of that unicorn pizazz without the extra work, just shake these unicorn-shaped sprinkles ($6) over the top of any one of your favorite desserts.
We all know someone (OK, it’s us) that prefers the marshmallow part of Lucky Charms to the cereal part. Good news: You can buy just the marshmallows ($14). Use them to decorate cakes, cupcakes or even to sprinkle into your other breakfast cereals.
Teeny Ice Cream Cones
Everything is cuter in miniature—these desserts are proof. So are these teeny tiny ice cream cone decorations ($6). A few sprinkled on top of a cupcake would be adorable for any party, but we’re dying to add some to an ice cream sundae.
When it comes to decorations, we’ve all see our share of pretty flowers. But what about succulents? This sprinkle assortment ($9) includes tiny fondant succulents and coordinating jimmies and nonpareils.
Sprinkles aren’t the only way to top your cupcakes and desserts. These cookie bites ($6) remind us of confetti cake and are the perfect way to top a confetti cupcake. Need a confetti shortcut? Here’s our favorite cake mix.
Sometimes regular sprinkles just aren’t enough, especially when you’re making a cake for a special occasion. In that case, you’re going to want gold! These glittery edible stars ($8) are just the thing to turn your favorite dessert into one that’s out of this world.
