Step 1Bake your favourite cake and leave it to cool on a wire rack before decorating. Victoria Threader made a classic Victoria sponge cake.
Add a tiny amount of the orange food colour and mix until you have a skin tone colour. Spread the buttercream over the top of the cake using the palette knife then chill for 10 minutes.
Step 2Mix 50g fondant and modelling paste together and colour to your hair colour. Victoria used a touch of yellow.
Roll and cut your hair shape from the paste.
