We did ice these lamingtons just a day or so after we baked the butter cake for them.
I just have not got to blogging about it. I'm probably spending my time eating them ;)

This box of prepared lamingtons reminds me very much of the box my Granny would carry out to our picnics. Beautiful pale, hand-formed lamingtons, coated in chocolate icing, covered with coconut.
The finished cake is a sweet, rich and moist delectable delight which few can resist the lure of. Very moorish as well unfortunately.
I have to say that these lamingtons were definitely given the thumbs up. The girls have been telling me lately that my food should be "sold in a shop". I think I'd prefer to cook less and eat more than anyone running a shop, and stay home with my family. Ess is letting me know as I write that "they are certainly fit to be restaurant desserts". I'll take that as a very high compliment. Really I am just glad to be creating fond memories for them which they'll cherish for their lifetime.
