Oooh! Sounds like something right out of Roy Strong's _Feast_! you are 
very lucky!

> And then came the announcement that we were invited to the back of the hall for the 'banquet' course!  Aiden and Hely had set up a small, latticed and decorated booth that they'd used at earlier events (back side closed with a roof and fabric overhanging the top).  On the table top of the booth were more "desserts" - dried apricots; sugar paste almonds colored with cinnamon and "glued" together with sticky tragacanth; sugar paste walnuts; a green-icing cone-shaped tree with marzipan fruits stuck into it; shortbread and fancy-shaped period gingerbread.  There also were small plates with the comfits that Jehenne and I had spent days and days making.  Whew!
