(Do not refrigerate.) 2. Organize the candy decorations in muffin pan cups or individual custard cups before you begin decorating. 3. To decorate the sleigh sides, place sides in opposite directions on a sheet of wax paper. To create sleigh runners, spread icing on one side of one 8-inch candy cane, and on other side of second candy cane. Place 1/4 inch from the bottom of each sleigh side so the rounded edge of the candy cane curves up along the front of the sleigh. Hold in place for 1 minute to be sure candy is securely attached. Pipe a line of icing above each candy cane. Press green M & M's and red cinnamon candies into the icing. Pipe dots of icing along outer edge of sleigh and top of back sleigh runner press red cinnamon candies into icing (A). Allow to dry on a flat surface at least 1 hour. To create "holly" decorations, slice 2 or 3 green spearmint gumdrop leaves in half lengthwise (use only top surface with leaf vein design). Attach "leaves" to side of sleigh with dots of icing. Attach red cinnamon candies to resemble berries (B). Allow to dry on a flat surface at least 1 hour. To create "bells," cut small red and green gumdrops in half lengthwise. Cut green gumdrops in half crosswise. Attach green pieces to upper edge of sleigh with dots of icing. Attach red "bells" and silver dragées with dots of icing (C). Allow to dry on a flat surface at least 1 hour. 4. To decorate outside of sleigh back, pipe decorative curved lines of icing. Keep piped icing at least 1/4 inch from edges for easier assembly of sleigh. Attach red cinnamon candies (D). Allow to dry on a flat surface at least 1 hour.
5. To decorate outside of sleigh front, pipe a large dot of icing on the center front. Attach a round peppermint candy. Pipe dots of icing and attach green M & M's and red cinnamon candies in a decorative design (E). Allow to dry on a flat surface at least 1 hour.
6. To decorate the reindeer, pipe dots of icing around the outside body of each reindeer to create a "harness" design. Attach a red cinnamon candy to the nose of one reindeer. If desired, pipe dots of icing for "eyes" (F). Allow to dry on a flat surface at least 1 hour.
