Materials and Tools Needed to Make DIY Edible Confetti
White sugar sheets — Or basic colored ones so you can skip the spray colors
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 You 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.
I loved the way the entire cake looked covered so I went that route!
This would also be cute for party favors or wedding send-offs that are biodegradable, whoop!
