3D winter scene - Santa's sleigh

Santa Sleigh by Tunde Dugantsi

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.

  1. Hi Tunde! I love the look/appearance of your design. As always, you never cease to amaze and are flawless. I'm going to look at cookie cutter kingdom (again!) lol; I get distracted and forget to go back. I like this sleigh set. I don't like the cuttr I have and a template sleigh that I cut out seems too big. I've been thinking of using it though and trying to decorate it. Love ya!
