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.)
