Thanks Kate. I like to be able to date recipes. This would make a good comparision recipe for early war, late war puds. I would imagine they would taste very different.
I have made a late war one which was very dry...or perhaps that was just my cooking! :(

I like the bulrushes/light arrangement and the tipsy rabbit (?)!
I made my Christmas cake (my first ever!) from a 1948 ministry of food leaflet- still needs decorating and I’m yet to decide on a theme!!! I was wondering about an army/ navy or air force theme (like the ones from the stork c book)…. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

In the end I didn’t have chance to make any models (all ideas but no get up and go me!), so I made a cake frill (of sorts!) instead!
I didn’t even use my old cake decorations either….Tut, tut.

As we have little ones in the house, we have not displayed our 1930s Christmas ornaments for many a year, but at the mo in Britain a number of the retailers have caught onto the idea of 'vintage Christmas' thus we have been able to procure reasonable repro (shatter proof) Christmas decorations.

Anyone else been able to source repro Christmas decorations?
