Just wondered if anyone would like to see a picture of the Morris Dance cake that my daughter made for my birthday recently. Complete with tiny models of a concertina and a melodeon.

Oh it's not a Morris Dance Beef Cake, as Spaw seemed fascinated with...

Fantastic.

"Dubai Sharjah Morris" sounds like a story in itself!

There are some pics at my web site www.greenhedges.com

Founded 1977, we were with them 1978-1982. Don't know what happened to them after that.

That is a beautiful cake!!!! As are the others!!!!! Easily worth what she's asking for them.

Isn't there a morris dance tradition involving cake. I remember the local morris team passing around cake at some festival and informing me that it was good luck for a year to eat it. So, I did. A week later my cat died. (He was almost 18, but still.) Within the year, my boyfriend was diagnosed with a tumor, and the day after he told me it was benign, my dad died. So I'm not so sure about that cake. Sian's cake is glorious!

Some traditional Morris sides carried a cake impaled on a sword. I think a few have revived this tradition.

But the request for a Morris cake came from me - she just designed it.

Our team Orange Peel Morris, have a tradition of placing a fruit cake on a sword, covering it liberally with Brandy and NOT setting it alight.
It is a tradition we have done continually since we started doing our version of the Apple tree Wassail on or around January 17th. Unfortunately this year, due to much warmer than usual weather (it has been -25C on occasion)the tradition is not now continuous, the damn thing had flames on it this year.
Nice cakes though.

Pre 1974 Green Ginger Morris, Hull, had a morris cake impaled on a sword. Then fool, Mick Robinson came up with it, probably baked by Nancy his wife.

I ate pound cake that had been impaled on a sword. You can do a lot to a pound cake.
