It Is inappropriate to top your pudding with an icing because it is not a chiffon cake, so you cannot play with the icing and adorn it to make it Christmassy, however, if you have Christmas themed molders like a Christmas tree, snowman, Santa Claus, reindeers, etc., you can always use it instead of using the usual baking pans.

Aside from coconut, you can also stick with the classic pudding with raisins. And make designs with it.

Okay, so you got there some dessert for the the Christmas dinner. How about the main dish? Want some spit roast? Make sure you have one on the table during this very special dinner of the year. It’s never too late to order now at South Western Sydney Spit Roast Catering.
