Holiday Cookie Decorating Kits
Celebrate the holiday season by getting creative with Safeway’s new Holiday DIY Cookie and Cupcake Decorating Kits, now available in the Safeway Bakery.
Fun for the whole family, you can choose from delicious store baked sugar cookies, chocolate chip cookies, or cupcakes with a variety of icing tubes and sprinkles.
The cookies are so good! Completely addictive to eat – soft, chewy, and the icing is so flavorful, absolutely the perfect Christmas cookies with minimal effort!
Talk about easy cookie decorating – rather than mixing the dough, chilling it, rolling it out, and cutting out your own cookies, you can purchase a complete DIY kit from the Safeway bakery for just $6.
That’s a great value for the cookie and cupcake kits and the kids will have a ball letting their decorating skills come out.
The DIY Decorating Kits are available in six options for you to choose from the Safeway bakery.
- Sugar cookies with purple, blue, and white icing tubes and sprinkles
- Sugar cookies with red, green, and white icing tubes and sprinkles
- Chocolate and vanilla cupcakes in both red, green, and white icing with sprinkles and purple, blue and white icing
- Chocolate chip cookies with purple, blue, and white icing tubes and sprinkles
- Chocolate chip cookies with red, green, and white icing tubes and sprinkles
The cookies and cupcakes are baked fresh in-store daily and assembled into the kits ready for you to pick up throughout the month of December.
Pick up a few boxes so your family has choices of icing and sprinkles.
Tips for Decorating Sugar Cookies
There are no rules for decorating cookies. Let your imagination go wild and let the icing flow. A few tips for a successful cookie decorating party include:
Set out paper plates for everyone to use for their personal cookie decorating station. This makes clean up easy!
Have plenty of knives available for spreading the frosting and mixing colors.
Set ground rules that no finger-licking or knife licking allowed 😉
Have a roll of paper towels on hand for cleaning frosted fingers.
For fine details and designs, consider purchasing icing tips and couplers that you can place on the icing tubes.
If you have holiday-themed cookie cutters, you can actually cut shapes into the sugar cookies. Just go slow to avoid breaking the cookie.
Cookie Decorating Ideas
Since it is the holiday season, it’s fun to go with Christmas and holiday themes. Here are a couple of ideas that were popular in my household.
- The Grinch
- Christmas Trees

- Polka Dots

Tools needed for decorating sugar cookies
The DIY decorating kits come with the cookies, icing tubes, and sprinkles, but if you want to get really creative, you can pick up icing tips and couplers in the Safeway baking aisle.
You’ll find several options available for cookie and cupcake tips that you can add to the icing tubes for drawing fine lines and adding details to the cookies.
One thing my kids asked for that I wish I had purchased was black gel icing so they could draw fine lines like eyes and buttons for snowmen – so that may be something to consider if you plan to decorate cookies.
I also had red hots on hand as accents for the cookies.
Tips for Decorating Cupcakes
The icing tubes make decorating cupcakes really easy. For pretty designs on the cupcakes, I highly suggest picking up the icing tubes in the baking aisle. You can create swirls, thick tubes, flowers, and more.
To create a multicolor swirl on the cupcakes – you can squeeze two icing tubes into one tip and get creative with making beautiful cupcake designs.
Add a marshmallow to create a snowman.
Use M&M’s or red hots as a garnish in addition to the provided sprinkles.
Fun for the whole family – these cookie and cupcake decorating kits will help you create lifelong memories, bring out your inner Martha Stewart, and have so much fun during the holiday season!
The Grich was by far the most popular design to mimic, followed by Santa and Christmas trees. These kids were really creative!
We used cookie cutters to cut snowflake shapes into the sugar cookies. My kids like cutting the cookies because they enjoyed eating the scraps.
One tip for decorating the chocolate chip cookies – turn the cookie over so you have a flat surface with which to work. It makes it easier to spread the frosting and decorate.
