1. Pour the custard, cream, condensed milk and cinnamon into a large bowl. Using electric beaters, whisk the mixture for 3-4 mins, until it has increased in volume and holds soft peaks. Fold through most of the gingerbread men, saving 1 tbsp for serving. Pour the mixture into a 1L freezer proof tub and freeze for a minimum of 6 hrs, or overnight.

2. To serve, scoop two balls of ice cream per person. Add slices of pear. Drizzle ½ tbsp salted caramel over each serving and sprinkle over the crumbled gingerbread men. Serve with a gingerbread man.
