  • Colour one-third of the remaining sugarpaste icing pale brown. Colour a piece pint, a piece red, some blue and a tiny piece black. Using the template, cut out the pieces and place in position on the cake. Stick down by lifting the edges carefully and brushing the undersides with a little water.
