Beat together the margarine, flour, eggs, 70ml coffee, 200g walnuts, and sweetener/caster sugar together, and divide the mixture between the three baking moulds/tins for 30 - 45 minutes (check by sticking a skewer into the cakes to see if they are done).

Allow the cakes to cool, and then slice the loaf cake length ways at an angle to make two triangular wedges.
Scoop out a small round cavity from the end of the rectangular cake, and place the flowerpot cake inside.
Using the green icing/sugar paste, create a pair of legs, by rolling the icing into sausage shapes, and join them together at one end.
Using a small amount of black icing/sugar paste, create shoes, and join them to the legs.
Using the white icing/sugar paste create a snowboard or pair of skis, by rolling it out and flattening it. Then join to the black shoes.

Create another cavity opposite the flowerpot cake, and place the icing/sugar paste figure inside, so that its legs are sticking up in the air.

Beat together the butter with the icing sugar, and 20ml coffee, then pour over the cake, being careful not to get the buttercream on the figure.
Place the two cake wedges together at the other end of the cake.
