These homemade vegan sprinkles are incredibly easy to make, but they do require a little patience. These are perfect for cupcakes, cookies, and more!


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Cover 2-3 cookie sheets with wax paper or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly into small bowls (the number of bowls needed depends on the number of colors of sprinkles you want).
  4. Add a small amount of food coloring to each small bowl and whisk thoroughly.
  5. Transfer each color mixture to a small zip-top bag (one bag for each color), spooning mixture into the corner of the bag. When ready to pipe, snip off a tiny amount of the corner of the bag and pipe onto the cookie sheets, creating very thin lines.
  6. Let the sprinkles dry overnight, or until completely set. When they are dry, break the sprinkles into small pieces and store in a sealed jar or bag.
