This will be fun. Today is History AND Craft Project Wednesday.
The Prude wants to share this delightful little idea to make history enjoyable and edible.
Turn your historical figures into gingerbread men.
The folks on the platter were created by the Prude to give to her English history and lit class.
They represent some of our favorite real or fictional personages.
-which is the Pictish warrior at the vanguard of the body paint/tattoo craze?
-which is Celtic Queen Boudicca, a woman with a vendetta against the Romans?
-which is the Green Knight who lost his head over Sir Gawain?
-which is King Alfred the Great and his burned griddle cake, whose greatness did not extend to baking?
-which is the Monster Grendal who would have given his right arm to defeat Beowulf?
-which one, with his Merry Men, robbed from the rich? (hint: the answer is not the US government)
Think of the fun you can have. You can make Lord of the Rings gingerbread men.
American Idol contestants.
You could even move beyond human form and make the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
The Prude has dibs on the pyramid.
Tomorrow is Quirks of the Cosmos Thursday, and we may just have more fun looking at the results of the Iowa Caucus.
