“[Holmes] had no breakfast for himself, for it was one of his peculiarities that in his more intense moments he would permit himself no food, and I have known him to presume upon his iron strength until he has fainted from pure inanition.”
-Dr. John H. Watson

Only Sherlock Holmes, with his unwavering dedication to forensic science, would forgo food and rely solely on his mental fortitude to sustain him while he solves yet another mystery. That’s a long way of saying — more cake for us!
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle could have never imagined that for over a century fans would enjoy reading about his famous character, Sherlock Holmes. Nor could he have imagined that those adventures would make for such delicious treats.
