BOOK INSPIRED CANDLE
A must for all Dickens fans and especially Great Expectations fans, here is our carefully blended Miss Havisham's Cake candle. I always felt sorry for Miss Havisham, sitting in her decaying mansion in her mouldy old wedding dress, one shoe on one shoe off; surrounded by the remains of her wedding breakfast and bride cake, with the clocks stopped at twenty minutes to nine. Such an iconic and well known character that I thought she deserved her own candle, but instead of decaying, mice-eaten bride cake, I thought I would give her a better cake - one that smells like the most delicious of cakes!
"What do you think that is?" she asked me, again pointing with her stick; "that, where those cobwebs are?"
"I can't guess what it is, ma'am."
"It's a great cake. A bride-cake. Mine!"
-Chapter 11, Great Expectations, Charles Dickens

When first burning the candle, please burn long enough for the melt pool to reach the sides of the container to ensure the candle burns evenly and lasts as long as possible.
Always trim the wick to 1/4 inch each time before lighting the candle and keep the candle free of debris such as wick trimmings or matches. Burn for 3 hours at a time to achieve the best results.
CANDLE CARE & SAFETY:
-Always trim the wick before burning - this will help the candle to burn cleanly and for longer, and will keep the flame height down.
-Candles should be burned for no more than 2-3 hours at a time.
-Container candles should never be left to burn until there is no wax left as this can cause the container to get very hot.
-Please discontinue use when there is 1cm of wax remaining.
-Always place candle on a heat resistance surface, and keep away from draughts, other sources of heat and anything flammable.
-Burn the candle out of the reach of children and pets.
-Keep burning candles at least 5cm (2 inches) away from each other.
-Never leave a burning candle unattended.
-Candles smell delicious but are NOT edible. Do not eat.
Please refer to the candle safety label on the container for more info.
