Just ahead of Australia Day, some dead set genius has come up with the ULTIMATE fusion of classic Aussie foods, fairy bread AND lamingtons!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your childhood dreams a reality!

2 (450g total) unfilled sponge slabs

450g (3 cups) icing sugar mixture

50g butter, at room temperature

125ml (1/2 cup) hot water 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


160ml (2/3 cup) thickened cream, whipped to firm peaks Hundreds and thousands

Step 1

Use a small knife to remove the brown crust from the sponge slabs. Cut each slab into even pieces.

Step 2

Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add the butter. Pour the hot water and vanilla over the butter to melt. Stir until smooth.

Step 3
Use a small knife to cut sponge pieces in half. Spread bases with some whipped cream, then replace tops. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes or until slightly firm.


Step 4
Spread the hundreds and thousands over a plate. Dip lamington in the icing mixture to coat, then roll in hundreds and thousands. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes or until firm.
