Santa and His Team!

This is a tasty sugar cookie centerpiece but you can make it out of any of your favorite roll out cookie recipes or in gingerbread!
Supplies Needed:
 Let's Get Started:
  1. Make your favorite roll out cookie recipe. Cut out 7 reindeer, 1 Santa and 4 cookies from the house front only.
  2. Bake and cool completely.
  3. Make royal icing mix and color a small amount of each color. Yellow, light brown, dark brown, black, red and green. Leave the rest white. We suggest to cover any made royal icing with a damp paper towel so it does not dry out.
  4. Attach tip #12 to bag and fill with white icing and use it as a glue to attach the 4 sides of the house together. Let dry.
Decorating the reindeer:
  1. Thin some light brown icing with water and use a pastry brush and brush the entire cookie except the antlers. Let dry.
  2. Use tip # 3 and dark brown icing and squeeze on antlers, ears, eye's, nose, mouth and hoofs. Save one reindeer and do his nose red.
  3. Use tip # 5 and red icing to pipe on saddles.
  4. Use tip # 3 and green icing and pipe in center of red saddle.
  5. Use tip # 3 and white icing and pipe white dots around saddle.
  6. For Rudolf, use the red icing and squeeze a wide line from top to bottom of his body, then a thinner white line on top, then sprinkle the white line with assorted nonpareils.
Decorating Santa:
  1. Thin some red icing down and brush Santa's sleigh, suit and hat. Let dry.
  2. Use tip # 5 and black icing for rungs on bottom of the sleigh and Santa's mitten.
  3. Use tip # 16 and pipe on details on Santa's suit, beard and top part of sleigh.
  4. Use tip # 3 and black icing for Santa's eyes and mouth.
  5. After cookies are dry, turn them backwards and attach stick with royal icing. Let dry.

Decorating the house:
  1. Use Tip # 12 and white icing and pipe around outside of house and corners. Sprinkle with assorted nonpareils. (Do this while the icing is still wet so the nonpareils stick).
  2. Use tip # 3 and dark brown icing and draw on doors and windows.
  3. Use tip # 3 and yellow icing and fill in the windows.
  4. Use tip # 5 and white icing and add snow below windows. Let dry completely.

Putting it all together:
  1. Put white royal icing on cake board.
  2. Place house in center.
  3. Wrap Styrofoam in aluminum foil and place inside center of house.
  4. Arrange Santa and his team in Styrofoam.
  5. Fill inside of house with iridescent filler.
This makes a tasty centerpiece for you holiday table!
