Homemade Sprinkles

These sprinkles are a simple variation on royal icing, a stiff frosting made from whipped egg whites and sugar. Chef Monica Glass, of Philadelphia's Sbraga Dining, taught us how to make them: she whips confectioners' sugar with dried egg whites, adds vanilla extract and coloring, and pipes it into thin lines which she lets dry overnight. Once dry, they're broken into bits. You can tailor them to your favorite colors and flavors; however you make them, they are worlds apart from the store-bought, plastic-canister version.
