I realise that multiparting something and glueing is not the ideal solution, but if the spoon face were cut down the centre length wise and each side printed (cut surface down) then there would be no overhang even approaching 45degrees.
@vik The printer I used for printing this actually had support material. I'm not sure how well it would print without it. I suspect the major pain point would be the top surface of the lego handle. I'm thinking perhaps if the printing process were stopped at the right layer, you could add in some sand or something to help add support. The STL object would need to be rotated such that the lego brick was flat.
How well does this print if you don't have support material?

Instructions

This is best printed on it's side to utilize the higher inner-layer strength.

If printed in ABS, Weld-On #4 can be used to chemically smooth the part. Be sure to wash VERY carefully to make it food safe again.
