  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a bowl until pale and creamy. Add the egg yolk and beat to combine. Add the flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg and stir to combine. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth.
  3. Step 3

    Divide dough into 2 portions. Roll 1 portion out on a lightly floured surface to a 5mm-thick disc. Use 7cm, 4cm and 2cm star cutters to cut stars from the gingerbread and place on the lined trays. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 10-12 mins or until lightly golden. Set aside on trays to cool. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Step 4

    Place royal icing in a piping bag fitted with a 1mm plain nozzle. Pipe onto biscuits. Set aside to set.
