Birthday parties can be stressful enough, without having to worry about baking cakes, cupcakes and organising creative birthday treats. We took a few store-bought classics and updated them to ‘birthday status’ – just add a few sprinkles and they are birthday-ready!

We used an assortment of Nicoletta Sprinkles – Cake Confetti, Cake Crystals, Nonpareils and Sprinkle Crunch to embellish and add texture to our birthday bites.

Mini Sandwich Cookies: You will need a few packets of mini cookies (we used Cinnamon + Ginger cookies), buttercream icing and sprinkles. Pipe or spread the buttercream on one cookie and sandwich it with another; roll in sprinkles to coat the visible icing layer between.

Doughnut Holes: You will need mini doughnuts, icing sugar, boiling water and sprinkles. Make glace icing by mixing icing sugar with few teaspoons of boiling water; pour over the doughnuts and sprinkle with decorations.

3 jars

Party Marshmallows: You will need 1 x packet marshmallows, 1 x chocolate slab and sprinkles. Melt the chocolate; wait until it is not too runny, and then dip the marshmallows into the melted chocolate. Before the chocolate hardens dip the coated end of the marshmallow in to assorted bowls of sprinkles. Insert mini candles into the marshmallows before the chocolate coating dries completely. Even on “non-birthdays” these are great to keep kids busy. Colour your white chocolate with a splash of food colour for extra fun!
