I have no space (in that little room) to catalogue all the whim-whams
with which she had made it beautiful, from the hand-sewn bell-rope which pulled no bell to the hand-painted cigar-box that contained no cigars.
In the kitchen they will be able to see long-forgotten Christmas treats like almond shamrocks, whim-wham
, hedgehog tipsy cake and brandied fruits.
There are many whacky sounding named puddings in recipe books such as whim-wham
, moonshine, apple hat and, of course, spotted dick.
