Bayeaux Cake

C.'s mother is an extraordinary cake decorator. For the birthday party we went to this past weekend, in honor of the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, she made a Bayeaux Tapestry Embroidery-themed cake. Behold.







Edited to add: I've passed all your lovely comments on to the cake maker!

Further edit: Now with photos of the whole cake. Note that I've edited out the name on the cake. (I'm not very practiced with image manipulation so I know it's a rather visible change on one of the photos. Sorry about that. I'm not happy posting names + precise birth dates of other people in public online so needed to change something.)

Amazing! Did you dare eat it? Who got Halley's Comet?

We did eat it! No comet though. The invitation and her card for the birthday person were also themed around this, so perhaps there was an inedible one on one of them.

We ate it. A good thing too: I think it was the best fruitcake I've ever had, and that includes all the others she's made that I've eaten. Most fruitcakes are too dry for my taste. This was the perfect balance of alcohol to crumb and fruit.

It was delicious. The best fruitcake I've ever had (and that includes many that she's made in the past).
