Santa Claus is made by panettone (a traditional buttery, vanilla-flavoured Christmas bread-like cake of Milan, tall and rounded in shape) covered by sugar fondant, plastic chocolate, and cupcake frosting. Let's see how.
Step 1: Shape panettone.
First you must cut the right shape for you Santa. You need 1 and an half panettone.
Take the first and cut the upper crust, if you find it in your own panettone.
Then cut a head shaped piece of panettone from the second one, and put it over the first, stickin' it up with some jam (apricot or peach jam are the best, they don't leave any strange taste to the cake) and a straw (see the picture).
