I capture the castle!

March 4, 2011

Well this was mostly Super Girl’s doing. Her History teacher initiated a peer assessed competition for a model castle. Back in Boy Wonder’s day we set to with matchsticks and did our best to make something that looked reasonably accurate and he was outraged that the winner’s entry was a lot less historical however it had a secret weapon – it was made out of cake. It’s the peer assessment bit – after all who wouldn’t vote for cake? So Super Girl was fore-warned, hers was to be a cake castle and we opted for a chocolate cake motte, with green icing, topped with a gingerbread keep and a palisade  of mint Matchmakers, although I really wish we’d thought to put a bit of cocoa in the icing glue although it doesn’t look quite so glaring in daylight as it does with flash photography.
