Sugarplum Sleigh

The kids will delight in becoming Santa's helpers this holiday season when they decorate a gingerbread sleigh dashing through candy snow. Gingerbread can be fashioned into all sorts of fanciful creations and embellished with colorful candies. Our sleigh is filled with bags of sweets nestled inside, as if delivered by Santa himself. It's terrific as a centerpiece, and the bags of candy become party favors for the guests.

You will need approximately two batches of gingerbread to make a 16-inch sleigh.
