I know Nancy makes her own cutters for a lot of her cookies.
There are tutorials online for doing just that, and that shape seems pretty do-able.
How many do you have to make? When I need a special shape, I roll out the dough, freeze it, and then cut the shape out with a small paring knife.
Obviously, if you have to do 100 of them, that won't be much fun.

Good luck!

i was just thinking of doing that design for my sister's wedding (about 200 would be needed). so i was hoping to find a cutter rather than cut them out by hand. i've bn wanting to make a cutter for a while now, but i just hven't bn able to find the right metal...yet!

What a dork I am! icon_rolleyes.gif I actually have this cutter from them and I used it for Herbie cars years ago. The shape would be so close as a back view of a car. Here's a pic of what I used it for...

I'm doing a bunch of similar cookies for my niece's wedding this fall. I played around with the design, and came up with a template that has fairly simple lines. I'm not going to do all the detail in Nancy's cookies (I'd go mad after 100 of them!), but I plan to stretch the baking process out over a couple weeks. So....making a template and cutting them out by hand won't be too bad. I hope.
