So you're baking a cake again and it's frosting time. You frost the top and the sides of the cake and pour the sprinkles on top, but every time you try to put sprinkles on the side of the cake it's a messy, uneven disaster. Well, the bottom line is placing sprinkles on the sides of a cake is not the easiest thing to do and you will make a little mess. But holding the cake over a bowl and tilting the cake a bit will reduce the mess and help you get an even coating.

Frost the cake on the top and sides as normal.
Pour the sprinkles into a large bowl.
Pick up the cake platter from underneath with one hand and hold it over the bowl. Place the cake on a cake board or the platter you are going to serve the cake on.
With your other hand, grab a handful of sprinkles and carefully pat them onto the sides of the cake. Tilt the cake slightly so that the excess sprinkles fall back into the bowl. Rotate the cake and pat more sprinkles all around the cake until all of the sides are covered.
Tips and warnings
- To keep the sprinkles looking clean and professional, rinse or wipe your hand free of frosting before each application of sprinkles.
