Step 1Colour 60g of white modelling paste skin tone with the tangerine food colour. Use a cocktail stick and add just a little at a time until you reach the colour you like.
Step 2For the body: Start by rolling a ball, then taper it at the top until you have a neck shape.
Step 3For the legs: Roll long thin sausage shapes and cut diagonally to size using a craft or sharp knife and stick to the body with a brush of water, using a fondant smoother to roll the sausage shapes gives you a nice even shape and size. Add a length of dried spaghetti into the centre of the body as support for the head.
Step 4For the dress: Roll the pink modelling paste out to a 2mm thick oblong and wrap it around the body, sticking at the back with a brush of water.
For the shoes: Roll small sausage shapes and pinch in the middle to make a foot shape, then flatten the shape with your finger and stick to the ends of the legs with a brush of water. To give the shoes a sole, roll the fondant cutting wheel around the base of the shoes, if you have one.
