My mum, Granma Bodger, used to make something very similar to this using a marrow, lots of sugar and a bottle of rum.
I have a dim and distant memory as a child of there being a huge marrow in the bath with a bottle of rum stuck up its ar*e with its contents slowly dripping into the marrow.  It was ages before we allowed to put the coal back in the bath.
