I'm still playing catch up in the LCC global storyline. The following story takes place before the coronation and Queen Galainir (do we have a set spelling of this? It seems to vary...) is 'revealed'. I'm just classing these as free-builds.

It was the morning of the coronation and a stream of guests and tradesman were arriving at the castle for the big event.
At one of the trade entrance's Jaykob and his cousin Happy were unloading the barrels of wine and beer from the lenfel brewer's waggon while the brewer himself refreshed his horse.
"How exciting!" puffed Happy, lifting another barrel off the waggon, "I do hope we see the Queen!". Jaykob smiled "We would need to have an invite first!" Happy chuckled in response "Well perhaps we could sneak ourselves in!" Jaykob smiled again "I'd rather NOT end up in the royal dungeons Happy!" he replied, unloading another barrel.
Meanwhile at the other side of the entrance and baker arrived with a large cake in tow. "We bring a cake for Queen Galainir" announced the sinister looking man at the front of the group. The head guard looked at his list, "What's the name?" he asked. "Maldrake's Cakes & Bakes" the blackclad baker replied. "Nope, not on the list" responded the guard. "I urge you to look again..." answered the baker, his eyes and voice conveying a force not know to the Royal Isles... "Ah... yes... I see it now... don't know how I... missed it" blinked the guard vacantly "Please proceed...". The baker and his gruff looking pastry chefs wheeled their giant cake through the entrance and into the castle.
"Wow look at that cake Jaykob!" exclaimed Happy "those guests are in for a BIG surprise!". Jaykob glanced at the bakers as they trundled the large cake passed, "They look rather dour for bakers don't you think?". Happy passed him another barrel, a smirk crossing his face "Perhaps... they KNEAD more dough
