I remember when I was a little girl, I would always watch A Christmas Carol movie to get into the spirit of the season. My favorite scene was when Mrs. Cratchit brought out the plum pudding.

 "Mrs Cratchit left the room alone – too nervous to bear witnesses – to take the pudding up and bring it in... Hallo! A great deal of steam! The pudding was out of the copper which smells like a washing-day. That was the cloth. A smell like an eating-house and a pastrycook's next door to each other, with a laundress's next door to that. That was the pudding. In half a minute Mrs. Cratchit entered – flushed, but smiling proudly – with the pudding, like a speckled cannon-ball, so hard and firm, blazing in half of half-a-quarter of ignited brandy, and bedight with Christmas holly stuck into the top." Charles Dickens

Plum pudding, AKA Christmas pudding or Pud, is traditionally served as part of the Christmas dinner in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Although it contains no actual plums, it is traditionally composed of thirteen ingredients, including dried fruits held together by egg and suet (yuck!) and an array of spices. The pudding is usually aged for a month or even a year and is prevented from spoiling due to the high alcohol content.

Last Christmas, I was inspired to explore my fascination. I finally finished my painting, that has been sitting on my easel since December 2018, just in time for Spring. The last few months have been a time of great transition for me. Now that my life is settling into a routine, I am hoping to post my dessert paintings more often.



  1. Yay! You finished! It's so beautiful. These last few months have definitely been a time of transformation for you. It's nice to finally get this painting off your easel and be inspired by this new season in your life.

    1. Thanks so much!I am happy it is done and I am ready to move onto the next painting!
