christmas pudding 'coins' (charms or tokens)

It's an old British tradition - seen in other countries as well - to put silver coins or sometimes other charms into traditional Christmas plum pudding. The idea is that if you find a coin in your piece of pudding you will have luck - especially with money - for the forthcoming year. These days because of the use of base metal coins the tradition is difficult to maintain. So I have created my own slant on the tradition and have made sets of pure silver Christmas pudding 'coins', each of which has been etched with a vintage Christmas illustration. Each set comes with recipes for my family's traditional Christmas pudding and brandy sauce, as well as care and use instructions. Made by me!

I usually start it around labor day and then let it sit until Christmas. But the time flew by and I was busy and the Christmas pudding wasn't made. Christmas dinner seemed almost empty without the cake-y pudding that is normally topped with a thick rum sauce. I'm severely tempted to order this Christmas pudding and have a second Christmas feast on epiphany.
