    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. In a large bowl, cream the brown sugar, caster sugar, eggs and butter. Sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarb, cinnamon and nutmeg. Alternate adding the buttermilk with the dry ingredients.
    3. Roll out the dough to about a quarter of a centimetre thick. Using floured Halloween-shaped cutters, cut out the biscuits and place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Re-roll any trimmings to cut out as many biscuits as you can.
    4. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove to cool on wire racks. Ice using your favourite icing recipe, and decorate with coloured sugar or hundreds and thousands.
