You will need:
Saracino sugar paste coloured in fuchsia, light green and lilac
Pre-coloured Saracino azure sugar paste
Pre-coloured Saracino green sugar paste
Pre-coloured Saracino yellow sugar paste
Pre-coloured Saracino black sugar paste
Roll fuchsia Saracino sugar paste into a small sausage, roughly 2 inches long. Be gentle while rolling and make sure you don’t have any air bubbles or air locks in it.
Flatten some orange Saracino with a rolling pin
Keep the fuchsia sausage in the center and trim the sides of the orange sheet to the size of the sausage
Now roll the orange sheet over the fuchsia as shown in the photo and cut off the extra, make sure that its exactly the same size of the sausage and not over lapping
Roll lilac Saracino sugar paste, approximately 0.5cm thick.
This has to be thicker than the sheets that were rolled earlier.
Now place the log over the lilac
Cut it to shape exactly the same way the orange sugar paste was cut and roll over the log
Again roll a thin orange sheet and cover the log, this will go over the lilac
Mix some yellow and light green to make lime green paste and then roll it into a thin sheet, cover the log with the lime green paste
Press this log from one side to make a tear drop shaped log
Now roll a very thin black sheet and cover the drop shaped log with it
Mix some azure and green sugar paste to make turquoise and roll it
Place the log over the turquoise.
Smooth the paste and seal the edges well.
To make the eye roll a small amount of black, cover with blue and the white as shown in the picture
Cover the eye (log) with black sugar paste
Roll the turquoise sugar paste lengthwise
Place the eye log over it and roll it
Cover that with thin black sugar paste sheet and make a nice round log.
Roll a small amount of fuchsia into a thin log.
Press on one side to form a drop shape
Cover it with black sugar paste
Cut it length way exactly in the centre and place a black strip in between each half.
Sandwich those two pieces back together to form the beak
Place the beak in position
Now slightly curl the tapered end of the body log to form its tail
Join the head and the body together
Cover the front of the body with lime green sugar paste
Cover the head with the lime green sugar paste
Roll a small sausage with lime green paste and place it exactly where the head finishes, as shown in the picture and then cover the rest with the lime green paste to form a nice round log
Cover the log with thin fuchsia sugar paste
Then cover the log with lilac paste
Gently roll everything together and you are ready to slice it
