Bake in the centre of the oven for 5-7 minutes. If necessary, straighten the edges and allow to cool.

Melt the sugar in a saucepan on the hob and assemble the lights/small houses. Take care as it is easy to burn yourself. Leave to set.

Meanwhile make the icing for the decoration. Using an electric whisk beat all the ingredients into a thick mixture. Pour into a piping bag and decorate.
