Last year's Christmas Pudding

This is a photo of my first ever attempt at making a Christmas Pudding - I made this for Christmas LAST YEAR!
I made another pudding yesterday. I'm not sure how it will turn out, I'm not so confident this time.
The way I look at it, I had nothing to lose when I made last year's pudding. I had never made one before, so if it didn't turn out, I could easily have said it was because I had never made one, didn't know what I was doing, any excuse really would have worked.
This year, my Mom put her order in, she was so impressed with my effort last year, she said I just had to make another one for this Christmas. I soaked the dried fruit in more sweet sherry that was called for, but OMG, did it taste good when I licked the spoon when I was all done. I mentioned earlier I wasn't so confident, the reason, I cut the ingredients by half this year, and sometimes that just doesn't seem to work when I do things like that with a recipe. Last year it was just toooo big, we've been eating Christmas Pudding just about all year. Vlad said I should just grab some of last years leftovers from the freezer, (it's the same as wedding cake really) microwave it, and put it in front of my Mom on Christmas Day, like I had slaved away all day making a new one. I just couldn't do it. Did I mention Vlad is my Mom's favorite son-in-law (and her only son-in-law), if she only knew hey?
Anyway, today's pudding it is now cooked and hanging to dry. I'll take a photo and post it soon.
Let's hope it's as good as the one in the photo - oh and if you want the recipe, let me know, I may even post it later. It's easy, well that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
