Pope Lady Buns are a sweet bun in the shape of a person and were a speciality of St Albans. There are various stories about where the tradition came from. The most plausible is that a medieval lady gave a sum of money for cakes to be distributed to the poor. She did this, it is said, after getting lost in the dark and then safely finding her way to St Albans thanks to the lights in the Clock Tower.
