To celebrate Agatha’s big day, HarperCollins went all out, with a speech, champagne, a murder mystery and most importantly, cake! Because what’s a birthday without it?
Inspired by Christie’s A Murder Is Announced, the cake has been christened ‘Delicious Death’, and was definitely one of the better cakes we’ve had, especially once it had had a good sprinkling of edible gold leaf. We just wish she’d been here to see it!
To try it for yourselves then simply follow the Jane Asher recipe below, and anyone that posts a photo of their own attempt to make it will automatically enter a draw to win an Agatha Christie poster! So get cooking!
