Industry etc

Saturday saw great industry in the Duchy-
A cake had been baked and iced and the above picture shows Dolly Mixtures being flattened,rolled,shaped and cut.In the end they were put on the cake to form the decoration-
The finished cake was for Jan's mother's birthday.The cake was a thing of beauty indeed!
Today I finished off and based some adventurers-
A cleric,a barbarian,three fighters, a porter and-
a lad who has found a sword (almost too heavy for him to lift) mail ( almost too heavy for him to wear) and used a cooking pot in place of a helmet!
Does anyone know who makes/made this figure-I  found him in a sale box at a wargames show?
They are off in search of a cooperative wizard to join them...


  1. I have seen something similar sold on eBay as Perkin Welbeck, I hope that helps.

  2. Impressive cake, and very nice figures....that porter or overladen adventurer is a classic. Hope the day went well.

  3. It was a Partizan show figure, some young English King (Edward ?).

  4. Oh that cake looks scrummy ! , Tony

  5. The cake does look good, as do the figures. The young chap looks like he's to hunt the Jabberwock.

  6. Tradgardmastare,

    What a great bit of cake decorating ... and some very nice figures as well.

    All the best,


  7. I rather like that young fella. Is that a vorpal sword?

  8. Very nice cake. And a likely (or unlikely?) group of adventurers. One almost expects the porter to be banging 2 halves of coconuts together...

  9. You can't go wrong with a nice cake - how very industrious of you all!

  10. Something special about a home grown cake- the Girls did well. Like Your Adventurers....a Battle brewing? KEV.
