I love 3D creations and always wanted to create a Santa's Sleigh. I designed a cutter set and Cookie Cutter Kingdom created it for me. Did you know, that they have a great custom order tool now? If you have a jpg picture of the shape you need, then your cutter is just a few clicks away. I love this tool.
First I baked all the pieces (using the recipe of the 3D hearts): 2 sides, bottom, back, front and the 2+2 reindeer.
Used brown egg yolk glaze to color (see recipe at 3D hearts) all pieces and decorated the pieces using royal icing.
I glued together the open legged reindeer with his closed legged buddy.
Now he has 4 legs.
This way it will be easier to stand him up.
Then I laid one side of the sleigh down and glued the bottom and the back to it.
I added the front panel.
Finally glued the other side on top. My icing dries pretty fast, after 30 minutes I could work on it.
I used bead border to hide the glue and to decorate the top.
I coated a cake board with a layer of icing for base and glued the parts on top. When it dried, I added a few icing lines to connect the deer with the sleigh and each other.
I hope you like this project! If you make it, please send me a picture. If you need the cutters, find them at Cookie Cutter Kingdom.
