  1. Put flour, butter, mixed spice, ginger, sugar, egg and honey in a food processor. Whizz to a smooth dough.

  2. Roll out on a lightly flour-dusted surface to £1 coin thickness, then stamp out shapes. Bake on trays at 200C/180C fan/ gas 6 for 10-12 mins until crisp and golden brown.

  3. After baking, brush the wings with a little runny icing, then dip into granulated or caster sugar to coat. Add stripes with small writing icing pens - you can buy packs in the supermarket with both black and yellow tubes.
