Get busy preparing for your Jubilee celebrations in style with these delightful pudding and mixing bowls from Mason Cash.
The traditional Mason Cash mixing bowl, that every country farmhouse kitchen is iconic for, has had a little redesign to mark the occasion of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this summer.
Available in cream, red and blue these patriotic ceramics are a true dedication to the year of 2012, while also boasting a Housewares silver award for 'Food Prep Innovation'.
The beautifully crafted products have been long loved by us Brits, appearing back in the 1800s in Church Gresley, Derbyshire, England, where the area's local clay creates the natural colour of the traditional cream bowls. In fact, the company claims that the bowls are still used in the British Royal Household to this day to make puddings on Christmas Day.
In honour of this and the Queen's Jubilee this June, the special edition bowls also come with a very fitting "God Save The Cream" embossed on the side. Other very apt phrases to choose from include: "Let Them Eat Cake" and "Off With Her Bread" - enough to keep any history and foodie geek like myself, very happy!
Prices do vary a little on the Internet, I actually bought my small pudding bowl in Adnams, on a trip up to Southwold, for £5. You can find the mixing bowl online between £15-£20, the jug for around £8, the small pudding bowl also for around £8, and the larger pudding bowl for around £10.
Grab one of these special pieces in time for your Jubilee baking - much more useful than the tacky souvenir mug you were intending on claiming after collecting 30 stamps from your newspaper!
God save the cream indeed !!
