Sprinkles, jimmies, whatever you may call that delightful, colorful topping of ice cream, cakes, and other delectable desserts, are branching out of children's birthday parties and into your wedding day. Sprinkle wedding cakes are the new fun spin on nuptial noms and it's easy to see why these babies are taking over Pinterest. After all, how can you not stop and smile at their colorful tiers?

Toting tons of nostalgia and whimsy, sprinkle wedding cakes are the unique bride's dessert dream. You can go heavy on the eccentricity and have colorful jimmies cover every inch of your wedding cake, or you can bridge the classic with the contemporary and just use an unexpected smidge of brightly hued sprinkles for a look that's fresh, elegant, and oh-so-fun. The possibilities are as endless as a rainbow.

And speaking of rainbows, this is one big day dessert that's sure to complement any color scheme. Brides can opt for a marvelously multi-colored look with traditional rainbow sprinkles or go for a modern, monochromic style dessert, using only a single shade. (We must say, we're head-over-heels in love with metallic-hued jimmies...)

Even better than the taste of these statement-making treats is the too-sweet price tag that they tend to tote. As far as dessert décor goes, sprinkles will often run bakers a littler cheaper than some other cake-topping confections, such as the typically more expensive fondant or ultra pricy sugar flowers. Impossibly adorable and less pricey? Well, that's just a deal almost good enough to eat!
