Oh, deer!

To make this sweet little deer:

  1. In dark brown icing, outline the deer with a #2 tip. Be sure to close off the tail separate from the body. (Spectrum Chocolate Brown)
  2. Using the same icing and tip, pipe hooves using a back & forth motion.
  3. Change the tip to a #3 and pipe antlers.
  4. Thin a lighter color brown to the consistency of thick syrup. Cover with a damp towel and let sit for several minutes. Run a rubber spatula through the icing to pop any bubbles that formed on the top. Pour into a squeeze bottle. Fill in deer body and ear. (Spectrum Chocolate Brown)
  5. Using the method above, thin white icing and add dots to the deer body while the brown icing is still wet.
  6. Use the same thinned icing to fill in the tail.
  7. After drying for an hour or more, use a #1 tip and black icing to add a nose and eye to the deer. (Spectrum Super Black)

  3. Thank you for posting this!!! I bought a reindeer cookie cutter but couldn't figure out how to draw in the antlers (lol!!) ... you're a lifesaver (or a cookie cutter saver) :)
