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 .


  • 2 (450g total) unfilled sponge cake slabs (Coles sponge slabs approx 18 x 12cm and 4cm high)
  • 450g (3 cups) icing sugar mixture
  • 50g butter, at room temperature
  • 125ml (1/2 cup) hot water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 160ml (2/3 cup) thickened cream, whipped to firm peaks
  • Hundreds and thousands, to decorate


Step 1

Use a small serrated knife to remove the brown crust from the sponge slabs. Cut each slab into 6 even pieces.

Step 2

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

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.
