Let Them Eat Cake / Qu'ils mangent de la brioche
Poor Marie Antoinette is, after her bouffant hairstyles, perhaps best known for uttering "Qu'ils mangent de la Brioche" - which is historically inaccurate on many, many levels.
Whilst London is hardly full of starving peasants it does seem to be bucking financial trends and literally eating more designer cake than ever before.
This article from the London Evening Standard reveals that cake sales are at an all time high. I wonder are people putting off the expensive holiday and instead indulging in designer cakes?
