How to Make DIY Edible Confetti

1 — First, use the color mist to tint the sugar sheets in the colors of your choice. A trick to this is doing several thin coats for darker colors, and fewer coats for lighter ones.

It’s also best to spray a tiny bit past the edges of the sheet so that the entire paper is covered evenly.

2 — Then, let them dry to the touch.

You can also buy pre-colored sugar sheets, but if you’d like more custom colors or mixture, the sprays help!

3 — Next, use a hole punch to go around the paper to make the pieces of confetti.

You can use as big or small a hole punch as you’d like, and the bigger the punch the quicker the pieces cover the cake, so less work for you!

It’s also fun to try different shapes, too!

Decorating With Your Homemade Confetti Sprinkles

You can sprinkle just the top of a plain white cake for a quick personalized color combo, or you can finish out all of the edges to make one statement confetti cake.

Another thing, try this DIY Mini Confetti Print Cakes that looks super attractive.

  8. I am not fortunate enough to have an entire room in my home to utilize as a home office, and
    only have a small, dedicated corner with my desk and chair.
    But here we are three weeks before summer break with me being
    a stay at home, work at home single mother of two in a two bedroom apartment.
    Lessons are learned but you will pay dearly for them.
