Did you know that Charles Dickens would have been 205 tomorrow? Well, he's no longer around to have his cake and eat it too but we have a fantastic new cake candle to celebrate his birth. Introducing Miss Havisham's Cake, a delicious cake scented candle which I think she probably would have liked and definitely deserved (rather than mouldy old wedding cake) because she was hard done by, jilted at the alter by some scoundrel who stole all her money. Poor Miss Havisham! Have some cake dear, you deserve it – and Happy Birthday Mr Dickens!

If Charles Dickens was still alive he would be 205 today! To celebrate, we created our second Dickens inspired candle – Miss Havisham’s Cake – which is of course a Great Expectations inspired candle. You might wonder why I chose this candle to release for his birthday and it’s simple really; Great Expectations is my favourite Dickens novel and Miss Havisham is one of my favourite characters. I always saw her as quite a tragic character, even though in the book she is quite bitter and twisted by her own life experiences, and caused a lot of trouble, I always felt kind of sorry for her and so I think she deserved a better cake! So in lieu of an actual cake, I created Miss Havisham’s Cake candle which I think she would appreciate and hope that you all enjoy.
