Tell us more about what inspired you. A magazine advert for Billington's sugar (here in the UK).

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The cake is a modified boiled cake recipe (a particular favourite of everyone who tries it) and iced with readymade icing from the supermarket. The reindeer, sleigh and santa I made using fimo clay baked in the oven. I used the advert from the magazine to help me style the reindeer's faces, the sleigh and the snoozing santa. I wanted to do this after discovering the advert was a computer-generated design and not real models at all - I think Billington's missed a trick there.

What are you most proud of? I am proud that the reindeer actually turned out looking how they did in the advert, especailly as I've never done this before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just have a go; the reindeer are cartoony so it doesn't really matter about properly shaping.
