Last weekend, the last in November and the first in the Advent, was traditionally the time when people make their Christmas pudding. Now I have to confess to not being that organised but I thought it would be a good opportunity to look at some beautiful Christmas puddings out there and some beautiful storage tins from Emma Bridgewater.
Stir Up Sunday Christmas Puddings:
Lavendar and Lovage has shown us how to make a wonderful microwave Christmas pudding which sounds like my kind of desert! The images are beautiful and the pudding looks pretty good too. As I’ve missed the boat on getting mine together this last weekend, I think this one could be just what I need. I love that she shares the stirring and making wish traditions too. Missie Lizzie over at Me and My Shadow made her pudding with the help of a well-known supermarket and some vintage mixing bowls: a perfect time to reminisce and consider how these bowls have been used in the past.
It’s clear that getting the family together to enjoy this tradition is very important and significant to some and part of me is sad that we missed it. There’s always next year I guess!
Storing your Puds:
Now to the bit where I can show some gorgeous ways to store your puddings and Christmas cakes. Emma Bridgewater kindly sent me a set of their Christmas town cake tins. Christmas Town is a pattern used a few years ago in the Emma Bridgewater personalised range, but it proved so popular they’ve designed a whole table range in it.
The tins are fabulous. Big and roomy, ideal for Christmas biscuits, cakes and puddings. They stack inside each other neatly for easy storing and could be used all year round.
And here are few other bits from the Christmas town range that I’m drawn to. I am particularly loving the chocolate filled bauble, a bestseller apparently.
If you would like to see more of the Emma Bridgewater range, and not just Christmas town you can take a browse through the website.
If it’s the Christmas town range in particular then don’t waste any time in getting your order in.
