Recipe from a very old Australian Women's Weekly cookbook- "cakes and slices'.. They suggest that day old cake or partially frozen cake is easier to manage when dipping the cake into the icing. I've made these successfully with fresh cake though. Keeping time listed as 2-3 days. After completed, you can cut the lamingtons in half add a layer of whipped cream and sandwich the halves back together. Lamingtons can be indivually wrapped in plastic clingfilm and frozen- grab one to go to add to your lunchbox.
