Once the icing is almost hard, decorate with your candy.

I molded the eyes with my fingers and just cut pieces to size for the antennas

Oh, I see Tesco! I liked Tesco!

Did you live in the UK? Tesco is weird, very hit and miss. Ideas for baking depend on whats in stock.
I studied abroad in Ireland for a few months a few years ago. I would always stock up on cheap food (usually these soup packets and Tesco pizzas) whenever I got a chance to go.
