Norman Conquest Day 2011 - let's eat cake!

Okay, here's my annual "purely representative of the actual event" cake reenactment of the Battle of Hastings. Some day I'm going to track down some actual Norman and Saxon toy soldiers, but in the mean time, just use your imagination. 

Aside from the knights on horseback (Normans), this year's battle was so chaotic, even I couldn't tell who was on who's side! 


Clang! Clang! Clang!

Smash! Wham!

(That's Harold, going down. You can't see him, he fell off the cake.)
