Who Needs the Terracota Army When You Got The Gingerbread Army

Who needs the Terracota Army when you can have the Gingerbread Army?

An army of gingerbread soldiers has been created as an edible rival to China's famous Terracotta Army.

The hundreds of edible soldiers claim to be a painstaking miniature re-creation of 2000-year-old treasures.
The men, depicted in full battle dress, will go on display to visitors at the three-day Nantwich Food and Drink Festival, which opens on Friday.

Kellie Burgess, of The Pastry Case bakery, said: "They are only three inches tall so it took staff hours to be able to paint each of the figures individually with terracotta coloured icing. "It required a lot of patience but we are delighted with results."
