So what do terracotta soldiers have to do with food? The folks at The Pastry Case bakery have created their own army. Dubbed "The Pannacotta Army" — although no pannacotta is actually involved — the army consists of over 200 miniature gingerbread warriors, each in their own battle garb.
According to a press release, Kelly Burgess of Roberts Bakery/The Pastry Case said:
"We have been amazed at the interest shown in the Terracotta army and wanted to treat Cheshire visitors to a private viewing, so we came up with our own idea of the Pannacotta Army."
The army will be on display at the Nantwich Food and Drink Festival in Cheshire County, UK.
I'd love to see the terracotta soldiers, but think a gingerbread army is fantastic too. What do you think?
