How To Sprinkle A Cake
1. Hand Sprinkled
The hand sprinkled method is a fairly foolproof method. As long as you use gentle hands you really can’t go too wrong. We love the use of the tray under the cake to pick up all of those escaping sprinkles! You can view all of Goodie Godmother’s baking videos here.
2. Roll Technique
With the roll technique, you ice the cake, cool it then roll it in a tray of sprinkles. This is a quick technique but it is a little riskier than the hand sprinkled technique. See more videos from the cake warehouse here.
