Happy birthday, Charles Dickens
Yes, I know he doesn't turn 200 until tomorrow, but I thought you might want a day to re-read your favourite Dickens novel to celebrate. My all-time favourite is Nicolas Nickleby. But, more importantly, here is the perfect Dickens birthday cake: The Miss Havisham Cake, which has the distinction of having been banned from an Australian cake show in 2010. Clearly by some judgy types who've never read a lick of Dickens. Via H.S.L.
