The Great Bard Bake-Off!

For the first time ever, the Villanova English grad program put on their very own literary bake-off! All contestants had to bake a Shakespeare-inspired sweet for the Bard's 452nd birthday.

Opeelia! - candied orange peels dipped in chocolate

"Blood will have blood" so says this Red Velvet cake

Happy birthday, Shakespeare!

"Yes, that's it!," said the Hatter with a sigh. "It's always tea time!"
 There were games, prizes, trivia and a live reading of the tea party scene! And what would a birthday be without cake?
Happy 150th birthday, Alice!
