First, put the cupcakes into the styrofoam cups.

Place the frosting in the freezer for about 30 minutes so it can stiffen, and once it’s firm, use an ice cream scooper to place one scoop of frosting on each of the cupcakes.

Next, pour the sugar sprinkles into a small bowl.While holding the base of your cupcake over the bowl of sprinkles, gently roll the frosting in the sprinkles until it is thoroughly coated.

Be sure to pat the cupcake gently to make sure the sprinkles stick. Add more sprinkles if you notice any bare spots on your cupcakes.
