Read an Excerpt

Hi there!

I am so happy to be bringing you a book called Sprinkles! How could I not be? Sprinkles are all about delight—with their color, sweetness, and little bit of crunch, they bring a visible layer of joy to everything they adorn. Sprinkles make the world a better, more rainbowlicious place. They exist, pure and simple, to make happiness.

But the world of sprinkles is far from simple. From the nearly microscopic to the size of a peanut, the term sprinkle encompasses all things cute and sweet, in every shape you can imagine. The power of sprinkles is anything but superficial. Whether it’s a host of multicolored sequins showered on a slice of fairy bread or one perfectly placed dragée topping off a cupcake, a sprinkly sheen on a sweet treat can change everything. And the best part is, you don’t have to be a pastry chef to play with sprinkles. With a few of the fun tricks in this book up your sleeve, you’ll be whipping up sprinkle-studded goodies in no time.

This book is all about using the beauty of sprinkles to unleash your creativity. The recipes and how-tos are also great for kids and families who want to cook together. But above all, Sprinkles! is a true community effort. We saw the amazing ways that people use sprinkles, and then we incorporated some of those ideas into this book. But we’d love to see more!

We’ve given you the tools, knowledge, and inspiration to create your own sprinkle-tastic vision, and now it’s up to you to bring it to life. The recipes are a guide, a way to illustrate all the wonderful ways to use sprinkles, but there’s always room for new ideas. Let’s get started and discover the rainbowlicious world of sprinkles together!
