Desserts are the sweetest part of your meal, but taste alone isn’t what makes dessert appetizing. One of the best parts of any dessert spread is the visual appeal. Confections that are pleasing to the eye really get your mouth watering and your stomach grumbling, and there’s nothing better than sprinkles to create that perfect eye candy. Sprinkles are versatile— you can put them on anything from cookies to cakes to donuts to popcorn, or even use them alone as decor! We’ve rounded up the best sprinkle ideas for you to try on your next showstopping dessert table.
