  • Christmas Sprinkles

    Please can you let me know where Nigella gets her sugar Christmas sprinkles?

    From the nigella team:

    Nigella uses several different types of Christmassy decorations - gold and silver dragees, red and green sprinkles and decorating sugars (sanding sugars). She has also used appropriately coloured sweets and candies including jelly beans, crushed candy canes, cinnamon drops and candy coated sunflower seeds (the last two are easier to find in the US than the UK). M&M's also come in green and red in special seasonal packages at Christmas.

    Most of these decorations can be found in cake decorating stores and some larger supermarkets and we have also suggested some on-line suppliers below.
