Planning on making a fort / castle for DS' 4th birthday

According to DS it must have a dungeon .. so I've sort of worked out how to do that (well how to attempt to do that) but I want some kind of lattice work edible thing to act as a grille over the top of the 'dungeon' ... is there anything I can buy that would work for that? .. it doesn't really have to be edible I suppose but it would be good

along the lines of I'm using ice cream cornets for the tops of the towers .. IYKWIM

I think you are looking at chocolate fingers, madame

could you somehow stick lots of those chocolate tiwglets together? would be very apt!

Sweet waffles are in the bread section at Sains or Tesco. If you sliced thru it then you would have a very thin lattice effect.

Also, you could melt some chocolate and do a sort of lattice effect with an icing bag onto greaseproof paper. Once it is cold it will be hard enough to use.
