Description Very few 15th-century molds made for baking have been preserved. The small shape suggests a specialty product, very likely an inexpensive spiced bread, such as gingerbread. Since the baked goods depicted a couple about to have sex, they were probably intended for the revels associated with peasant weddings or for sale at village fairs.
