broken elephant

In Wimbledon Village, there's a grocery store called Bayley and Sage.  Going there is always something of a guilty pleasure - my father refuses to countenance its existence (he's a Waitrose man), since he thinks that everything is outrageously overpriced.  So it is, I guess - but there are a lot of things that aren't too easy to find anywhere else by way of treats (and they sell very good cheese, too).  So this time, inter alia, we stocked up on various cookies, including this gingerbread, decorated with an elephant that looks almost like a reverse henna tattoo.  Unfortunately, it cracked on the way back here, but I'm sure it'll still taste good, when I can summon up the courage to engage in such aesthetic desecration.
