    • 6mm cutter or oval template, cut out of card

    Method

    1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line two baking sheets with baking parchment. Make up the dough in batches according to whether you want to create one or all of the different characters. The method is the same in all of them, it's just the sugar and spices that vary between the doughs.

    2. Cream together the butter and sugar, then gradually beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix in the flour and spice to create a fairly soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently. Cover or wrap the dough in cling film and chill for at least 30-60 minutes.

    3. When ready, roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to around the thickness of 0.5cm. Cut into circles using an 8.5cm round cutter and carefully transfer the biscuits to the lined baking sheets, using a spatula. Repeat with the remaining dough, and re-roll the trimmings to make more biscuits. Bake the biscuits for approximately 10-15 minutes or until just golden around the edges. Leave the biscuits to firm up on their trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

    4. Once the biscuits have cooled, roll out the fondant, corresponding to the characters you’re creating, to approximately 0.25cm on baking parchment to prevent it sticking. Cut out enough 8.5cm circles of fondant in the characters’ helmet colours for the amount of biscuit faces you're planning to decorate.

    5. Using a little runny honey and a paintbrush, apply a small amount around the edge of the biscuits to act as glue. Carefully transfer and position the fondant on to the biscuit and use the tip of your finger to adhere both together.

    6. Now using either an oval template or 6cm metal cutter, cut out a face from inside the coloured fondant. If creating Xuli or Foz, roll and cut out the other coloured fondants. Apply the extra detail to the helmets and a white tuft of hair for Xuli.

    7. Finally shave off the pointed tips from the chocolate chips and stick these cut-side down onto the biscuit faces using a paintbrush and a little melted chocolate. Using the chocolate and paintbrush, paint on mouths and eyebrows, then leave to set.
