Prepare Giant Sprinkles
Divide the fondant into eight equal 1 oz portions. Leave 1oz white, and dye rest all the fun colours of sprinkles - yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue and green. Rub a little vegetable shortening onto your fingertips and pinch off little pieces of fondant. Roll each piece with your fingertip to create the sprinkle. Allow the sprinkles to dry so that they maintain their shape.
