  1. Wow ….thank you Mandy! I put together the menu in an idle half hour so while having a coffee and never expected it to win at all. The starter and main are pretty much things I have done before but the desert was a flight of fantasy … I’ve only a vague idea how I’d go about doing it myself and, to be honest, I think I would probably cheat and use a pre-made plum pudding and pack chuncks of it into little timbale cups or something as molds… I am super interested to see how it gets executed 🙂

    • Your are most welcome John. I have just made a plum cobbler from another friends blog and think I may use that as the base idea for the puddings or try something completely different. Best get cracking as Christmas is not that far away. Have a super weekend. 🙂
