This is a short and sweet post that does exactly what it does on the tin!
Last week I was excitedly showing a friend my ever-growing collection of festive cake sprinkles, and I decided to bring you a little post showing you what you can buy and where to get them from!
For years it has been difficult to get super awesome sprinkles in this country but things are improving! eBay is one place where you can get fantastic variety and value, but you do need to order now for Christmas as they could take up to a week to come.
On the high street, try TK Maxx, Homesense, Lakeland, Home and Bargains, B&M Bargains, and the supermarkets. Lots of the sprinkles below are from TK Maxx, but of course you never know what you’ll find in any specific store.
Luckily you can get many of the same ones on eBay too! Life lesson – you can get EVERYTHING on eBay!
Of course, if you have specialist cake decorating shops near you, those would be a really good bet too!

Christmas Tree Sprinkles (centre)
from TKMaxx (£2.49) – also eBay if you can’t find them in TKMaxx
Festive Hundreds and Thousands (top left)
from TKMaxx (£2.49) – also eBay (from £1.25) if you can’t find them in TKMaxx
These would look so cute sprinkled over a Christmas trifle or hot chocolate.
Festive Confetti Sprinkles (bottom left)
I LOVE these large flat festive coloured confetti and picked them up in my local cake decorating store Sweet Success one or two Christmases ago!
Snowflakes Sprinkles (middle left)
The perfect thing if anyone in your house is obsessed with Frozen!
Gingerbread Men Sprinkles (top right)
I love these little guys! I used them to decorate my adorable gingerbread men cupcakes. Only a few are needed for a great impact, so these last forever!
Festive Candy Beans (middle right)
from Lakeland (£1.89)
Sadly Lakeland have now stopped selling these, but you might find some in your local store. Alternatively, buy Smarties or M&Ms and only use the red, white and green ones!
Gold Star Sprinkles
I picked these ones up from Asda (use sparingly and carefully as just a little go a long way!) but they’ve now stopped selling them so luckily you can also buy them online and in varying designs, including silver stars, red hearts and more. See them in action in my Christmas bark at the top of the page!
These sprinkles would all look fantastic strewn on top of a festive trifle or pud, and you can also press them into the tops of cookies as shown above! They will generally keep for two to three years – the only challenge is remembering where you put them in time for next Christmas!
Happy festive baking!
