Life Hack: Easy cake decorating trick using a cookie cutter and sprinkles

This is such a quick and easy way to decorate the top of a cake. I can't believe it took me 6 years of motherhood to think of it!

Simply choose a cookie cutter shape that you like and gently place it on the top of a cake. It should sit into the icing layer slightly (about 1mm deep) so the sprinkles don't spill out the bottom sides.

Carefully pour the sprinkles into the centre of the cookie cutter, and gently spread them around to fill all the nooks and crannies. You're going for thin layer of sprinkles with complete coverage.

Gently pat them down with the back of a spoon or your finger to secure them in space (being careful not to completely submerge them under the icing). And then remove the cookie cutter.

If by chance a few sprinkles shift, simply push them back in place with a toothpick or pick them off with tweezers.

Also these number sprinkles are just the cutest thing in the world, in my opinion. I used them for both my boy's birthday cakes this year. They're by Wilton, and I found them at Michaels.

Do you have any cake decorating tricks or tips? I'd love to hear if you feel like sharing :)
