Sprinkle Shack Tutorial
Quick! Turn on The Beach Boys and mix up a tropical umbrella drink. Let’s get ready to go “Surfin’ U.S.A” and build the most adorable Sprinkle Shack while we’re at it.
A few extra household ingredients will take the Sprinkle Shack from cute to totally tubular. I recommend laying everything out and having the additional ingredients ready to go.
First, let’s start with the roof. With the premade icing roughly cover the face of one side of the roof. Immediately place the pop tart cereal on the roof to look like shingles. Repeat this step for the other side of the roof. Put aside to let fully set. This is the key to a solid construted sprinkle shack.
While the roof is drying, start working on the front and back panels of the shack. With the blue royal icing trace around the windows and doors of each panel and fill in the negative space with the icing. While the icing is still wet grab the sprinkles and sprinkle right on top of the blue icing. Get creative, use as much or as little as you want! After you have placed the sprinkles and while the icing is still wet frame each window and door with pretzel sticks to create that tropical cabana feel to the Sprinkle Shack. With the pink royal icing, erepeat these same steps with the side panels. Set the front, back, and side panels aside overnight to fully set.
Let's raise the metaphorical and literal roof on this Sprinkle Shack shall we?! On the cardboard base secure the all panels (sides, front, and back) together with the icing. Don't be shy or stingy. Spread a line of icing on each edge to ensure sturdy construction. Let these panels dry for at least 12 hours before placing the roof on top. When ready to place the roof, run a line of white icing on the top edge of the Sprinkle Shack base and place one rood panel on at a time ensuring they are stiff and stable.
Now here's the best part. Grab those fun pressed sugar decorations and get to decorating! We placed a beach ball on front with some palm trees out back. A Sprinkle Shack would not be complete without a few surf boards, so don't forget to boogy up those long boards around the shack. Want to get even more creative? Mix up some graham cracker crumbs with a pat of butter to a sand like texture and cover the cardboard with it. Sprinkle on that gold and white mix over top for a glistening beach shore line.
You are now ready to hang ten or work on that summer tan next to your totally tropical Sprinkle Shack.
