Battle of the Cabbage Patch by coginamachine Battle of the Cabbage Patch by coginamachine
Full Title: "Historical Cakes Round II: Ireland, 1848: The Battle of Widow McCormack's Cabbage Patch".

Re-enactment again, but this time with jelly babies - very Doctor Who - instead of Lego. On the left are the police, well-regimented, and led with by a man (or jelly baby) with a big feather in his cap. Red, so they're sort of Redcoats. They're well armed with bayonets - well, cocktail sticks. Same thing.

On the other side, among the cabbages, are the Young Ireland rebels, led by, it seems, Robin Hood (traditional Lego hat at any rate), in appropriate green. They're pretty dead. They're hemmed in by a chocolate fence, and have no weapons, and are making a tragicomic desperate last stand. It is in fact pretty sad, a bit like Les Mis, except it was in a cabbage patch. Really.

Also note one of the Young Irish is running away. Whether because he was chosen to be the one to bear the tale, or because he's a terrible coward, you can decide.
