Head into Coles and combine two iconic Australian treats to make fairy bread lamingtons these holidays. They’re sure to be a hit with kids, and adults alike .
Use a small serrated knife to remove the brown crust from the sponge slabs. Cut each slab into 6 even pieces.
Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add butter. Pour hot water and vanilla over the butter to melt. Stir until smooth.
Use a small serrated knife to cut sponge pieces in half horizontally. Spread bases with a little whipped cream, then replace tops. Place in fridge for 15minutes to firm slightly.
Spread the hundreds and thousands over a plate. Use two forks to carefully dip a lamington into the icing mixture to coat. Tap forks on side of bowl to remove excess. Carefully roll in hundreds and thousands, patting to coat. Place on a wire rack. Repeat with remaining lamingtons, icing mixture and hundreds and thousands. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes or until firm.
