Finding the perfect shape for cookies has never been easier than it is with Makerbot. After printing an amazing set of Doctor Who cookie cutters (designed by dgwilson) for a friend I thought I’d try my hand at fancy decorative baking, not my usual project but I think it turned out well.

Step 1: Ingredients

I followed the recipe from Nigella Lawson with some minor changes. Here’s my version:


¾  cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, softened
¾  cup sugar
2 large eggs
1  tsp. vanilla extract (follow this Instructable to make your own!)
2 cups AP flour, plus more if needed
1  tsp. baking powder
1  tsp. salt
1 3D printed TARDIS cookie cutter
2 baking sheets, lined with parchment paper
1 bottle blue gel paste food coloring


2  Tbsp. hot water
1  cup confectioner’s sugar
Really good, although personally I would have had added more food coloring to make a darker blue.
Oh, perfect! Love the color :D
