Top item California put inside bread roll (7,3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

bathing cap

Here is my best explanation:

'top' is the definition.

(piece of headwear for one's top)

'item california put inside bread roll' is the subsidiary indication.

'item' becomes 'thing'.

'california' becomes 'ca'.

'put inside' is an insertion indicator.

'bread roll' becomes 'bap' (I've seen this before).

'thing'+'ca'='thingca'

'thingca' inserted inside 'bap' is 'bathingcap'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Another definition for bathing cap that I've seen is "Swimmer's hair protector".)
