<<< There's a recipe in Digby for a barm raised spice cake -
and Johnnae has actually cooked it - that could work in the bundt
pan. >>>

Oh? I'm not sure I've seen this one. I keep hearing of Digby's  
"Excellent Small Cakes". Recipe/redaction someone?

<<< And it could be coated with a "period" icing recipe - although i
want to alter it and color it pink or reddish with fruit juice. >>>

You may already have this info, but just in case you don't...

<<< And
i'm that "period" gingerbread might work in the smaller roses (and
cutting them into smaller pieces, following the rose petals). >>>

I've never tried forming it into something so fine. But perhaps my  
breadcrumbs just haven't been ground enough.
