Our Story

Hallo, I'm Surien Venterchickadee_3d_design_founder_Surien

Owner and Founder of Chickadee 3D Designs.

Where passion meets precision in the world of Custom Cookie Cutters!

Our Origins:

Chickadee 3D Design sprouted from a love for baking and the pursuit of perfection. As the former owner of Cake-elicious, I faced the challenge of sourcing quality cookie cutters with swift delivery times. Fueled by the frustration of this predicament, I delved into the world of 3D printing, acquiring an Ender 3 printer to craft custom cutters for my own creations.

The turning point came when I shared my newfound capability on the Cake-elicious Facebook page. The response was overwhelming, with fellow bakers expressing interest in acquiring their own custom cutters. What began as a personal solution soon evolved into a service for the baking community. Although I had to bid farewell to Cake-elicious due to personal circumstances and the impact of Covid, the demand for these bespoke cutters persisted, laying the foundation for Chickadee 3D Design in July 2021.

Our Approach:

At Chickadee 3D Design, we operate on a print-to-order basis, eschewing pre-made stock to ensure that each customer receives a uniquely crafted product. This commitment to customization defines our brand, allowing us to cater to the distinctive needs of every baking enthusiast.

Our Values:

Our mission is to provide your baking business with a curated selection of top-notch, high-quality cookie cutters that elevate your creations to new heights.
