This has to be my most favourite puddings, upside down cake. This one was made with plums, it's a very simple recipe which I can post up if anyone would like it.
It's great to pop into a hot oven after cooking a Sunday roast and rounds off a dinner perfectly, especially on dark Winter days.
Serve with lots of cream :D
Painting of a different sort has been happening at Oakmoon Towers! I finally decided to give my bedroom a bit of a facelift. As it's half in the roof, a bit of a Gothic theme suggested itself so I dug out lots of pictures of the Gryffindor common room for inspiration.
It's slow going and the worst bit was the ceiling! I chose a dark cream for the walls, which looked very apricoty to start with but is quite warm and cosy now after getting used it! I have two more walls to finish and then the finishing touches.
I've looked everywhere for the perfect curtains, but have accepted that I'll have to make them myself, as I'm not shelling out over £100.00 for a set. The problem is that I want heavy tapestry drapes which are not easy to come by. I'll keep you posted on that score!
Right, back to the easel today as I've a lot to get done in a short space of time. Walk the puppy first though :D
